Sons Of Liberty

The Sons of Liberty were a secret patriotic society organized in the American Colonies in 1765 to oppose the Stamp Act.  After the Stamp act was repealed in 1766, the society, which was made up of many local chapters, formed Committees of Correspondence to foster resistance to oppressive British economic and political actions.  The Sons of Liberty also helped enforce the policy of nonimportation, when the American merchants refused to import goods carried in British ships, and in 1774 it took part in assembling the Continental Congress.  Leaders of the Sons of Liberty included Samuel Adams and Paul Revere.
Many of the members of the Sons of Liberty fought in the Revolutionary War.  The following are some of the members from Baltimore.
