Samuel Adams was very important to the time period because he was involved in many important things such as the Boston Tea Party,the Sons of liberty and also the Stamp Act. He was born on September 27, 1722, in Boston Massachusetts. He died on October 2nd 1803. His second cousin was John Adams. Samuel Adams played a vital role in helping to organize the Boston Tea party. He was important to the Boston Tea Party because he was the leader of The Sons Of Liberty which organized it. The Tea party was when the colonists wanted to fight back because of the taxing so Samuel Adams wanted to fight back and destroy the tea. It kinda backfired on the colonist because the british just wanted to tax more to make the money back. They got the idea to tax stamps and make more things require stamps which eventually was called The Stamp Act. He also was very important because he created the sons of liberty. The sons of liberty was a group that wanted to speak up. He was the leader of the group.They were the people who destroyed all the tea. Those are my few reasons why he was a really important person in his time period.
