Explores the role of the Sons of Liberty in the American Revolution. Knowing that their deeds-- often directed at individuals and property-- were illegal, and punishable by imprisonment and even death, these agitators plotted and conducted their missions in secret to protect their identities as well as the identities of those who supported them. Those determined men-- including second cousins Samuel and John Adams, Paul Revere, Patrick Henry, and John Hancock-- saw themselves as patriots. Yet to the Crown, and to many of the Sons' fellow colonists, the revolutionaries were terrorists who deserved death for their treason.
