Samuel Adams

Are you related to a Founding Father? On September 27, 1722, Samuel Adams was born in Boston in the British colony of Massachusetts. A strong opponent of British taxation, Adams emerged as an important public figure in Boston against actions he viewed infringed on the rights of the colonists. He even played a vital role in organizing the Boston Tea Party in protest of the British Parliament’s passing of the Tea Act. In 1776, he signed the Declaration of Independence along with his second cousin and future President of the United States, John Adams.
