Who Were the Sons of Liberty?

The Sons of Liberty were a group of Patriots dedicated to independence. They started meeting in secret and called themselves the Sons of Liberty in the belief of freedom. Samuel Adams was the founder of the Sons of Liberty. While taunting the British soldiers, panic ensued and the soldiers fired into the crowd killing Liberty members Crispus Attucks, Samuel Gray, James Caldwell, Samuel Maverick and Patrick Carr. This was labeled the ‘Boston Massacre’.
