Introduction

Have you ever wondered about a man who disagreed with the British policies and what he did about it ? What about a war in the streets called The Boston Massacre and snowballs, stones and sticks were thrown. How about a group of women who also disagreed and what they did.

Some words to describe Samuel Adams are leader, confident and genius . Samuel was very confident and a good leader so he was good at organizing things. Also since he was a genius it helped him become a leader and be able to be in charge of people.
