The Librarian's Mantra

"It is the duty of every good citizen to use all the opportunities which occur to him, for preserving documents relating to the history of our country." Thomas Jefferson

Samuel Adams (1723-1803)

SAMUEL ADAMS is known as the "Father of the American Revolution," for he organized the resistance to British tyranny in New England, forming the "Sons of Liberty," "The Committees of Correspondence," and was a ring-leader of the Boston Tea Party. It is he who coined one of the famous cries of the Revolution: "No taxation without representation!" His writings are a history of the cause, progress, and ideals of the American Revolution.
