Sam Adams, John Hancock, Paul Revere - angry protesters. They did not diminish democracy!
funny how the British knew John Hancock, Sam Adams, Joseph Warren, and Paul Revere were among their ranks. Coincidence no doubt..
I stood at Paul Revere and John Hancock's graves tonight. And John Hancock's hands grave. 3 feet away from the rest of his body. Poor guy
On this day, 1775, Paul Revere made his ride warning Samuel Adams & John Hancock the 2 arrest them
Andy he was a Freemason just like George Washington, Paul Revere, John Hancock, Ben Franklin and John Wayne.
I'm pretty sure Paul Revere and Sam Adams were about to kiss but John Hancock ruined the moment, what is even going on?
Pics of city of Boston, Cheers Bar, Fenway Park, graveyard where Samuel Adams, Paul Revere, Ben Franklin's parents, Mrs. Goose (stories of Mother Goose), and John Hancock were buried, City Hall and site of Boston Massacre. Very neat city and amazing too see it's odd to see real old buildings within all of the modern day buildings.
Honestly, I would like more Phillis Wheatly, Abigail Adams, and Deborah Sampson before any more about John Hancock and Paul Revere tbh.
Samuel Adams He was the Father of the Revolution and the original "Uncle Sam". King George offered to pardon all of the colonials except two: John Hancock and Samuel Adams. He then sent his army to capture them and to hang them. That is why Paul Revere rode that night and why we fought the first battle of Lexington and heard the "Shot heard round the world".
Shout out to George Washington,Ben Franklin,Thomas Jefferson,Samuel Adams,John Adams,John Hancock, Paul Revere,William Dawes, for today. USA
Happy Independence Day, America! Please take a few moments to reflect upon the reason we celebrate this holiday and the sacrifices that were made to achieve our independence. What do you think John Hancock, Sam Adams, Alexander Hamilton, George Washington, Silas Deane, Thomas Jefferson, Nathan Hale, Paul Revere, and so many others would think about the kind of government we have in place today? And think about how far we've fallen from our roots. Roughly 238 years later, and you have to ask - what have we become? What kind of people trade liberty for modernization? Give it some thought after you've finished your hot dog, and can of Budweiser.
The burial site of John Hancock, Paul Revere, Benjamin Franklin's parents, and all five Boston Massacre victims.
Paul Revere, Samuel Adams, John Hancock. is makin me HOT right now.
Let's see.We started off with George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, John Hancock, John Adam, Ben Franklin, Paul Revere, Madison, Monroe, and about 50 others who put their very lives on the line to found and frame the United States. Along the way we picked up an Eisenhower, Pershing, Alvin York, Patton, Bradley, MacArthur, Wainwright, FDR, "Give em *** Harry", and a few million more Patriots who stood on the same foundation our framers laid and made us the most respected and powerful nation on planet Earth this side of Heaven. Leaders of this caliber were in no wise perfect, but they recognized that weakness in themselves and therefore acknowledged the fact that none of America's accomplishments would or could have been realized without the inexhaustible strong Arm of Almighty God carrying us along in the march. Today we have obamma, biden, polosi, reid, rangle, Hillary, 30-odd un-elected czars, and a couple of geriatric Supreme Court judges who wouldn't know what the Constitution and Bill of Rights were .. ...
Paul Revere’s Ride: April 18, 1775, brought the most famous ride in American history. With the colonies near open rebellion, British general Thomas Gage ordered 700 troops to march from Boston to Concord that night to seize the militia’s military supplies and to arrest Patriot leaders Samuel Adams and John Hancock. The British had hoped to move in secret, but Patriot spies were everywhere, and soon silversmith Paul Revere was galloping through the night, spreading the alarm “for the country folk to be up and to arm,” as Henry Wadsworth Longfellow put it in his famous poem. There are several misconceptions about Revere’s ride, thanks in part to Longfellow’s verse. One is that Revere waited for a signal lantern to be hung in the tower of the Old North Church to know how the redcoats were moving—one if by land, two if “by sea” (across the Charles River). In fact, Revere himself directed the signal be set to warn other Patriots in the area. Another misconception is that Revere galloped along ...
Samuel Prescott rode into history like a streak of lightning and out of it as quick as a flash. If it were not for Paul Revere s deposition of his own famous midnight ride, history might never remember Samuel. He was a young physician courting a clockmaker s daughter and planning to dedicate his life to the practice of medicine until the American Revolution rewrote his destiny. But this is not only his story; it is also that of John Hancock, Samuel Adams, Joseph Warren, William Dawes, Paul Revere, Thomas Hutchinson, Jonas Clark, the Mullikens, and those who died at Lexington and Concord and at Breed s and Bunker Hills.
Checking out Samuel Adams, John Hancock and Paul Revere's grave sites!! I know.kinda creepy!

The Sons of Liberty were started in Boston, Massachusetts in protest of the Stamp Act of 1765. The Sons of Liberty also opposed the Townshend Acts, the Tea Tax, and any form of "Taxation without Representation". Some of the more famous Sons of Liberty included it's leader, the "Father of American Independence", Samuel Adams, Patrick Henry, John Hancock, James Otis, Paul Revere, and Doctor Joseph Warren , who was killed at Bunker Hill.

It's where John Hancock, Paul Revere, and Sam Adams are buried
1775 - February 1, in Cambridge, Mass., a provincial congress is held during which John Hancock and Joseph Warren begin defensive preparations for a state of war. February 9, the English Parliament declares Massachusetts to be in a state of rebellion. March 23, in Virginia, Patrick Henry delivers a speech against British rule, stating, "Give me liberty or give me death!" March 30, the New England Restraining Act is endorsed by King George III, requiring New England colonies to trade exclusively with England and also bans fishing in the North Atlantic. 1775 - In April, Massachusetts Governor Gage is ordered to enforce the Coercive Acts and suppress "open rebellion" among the colonists by all necessary force. April 18, 1775 - General Gage orders 700 British soldiers to Concord to destroy the colonists' weapons depot. That night, Paul Revere and William Dawes are sent from Boston to warn colonists. Revere reaches Lexington about midnight and warns Sam Adams and John Hancock who are hiding out there. At dawn ...
The last True Patriots in Massachusetts were Paul Revere, John Hancock and the Adams boys.
When can you say you saw where Paul Revere, John Hancock, and Sam Adams are buried?
unreal. I felt the same standing between Samuel Adams, John Hancock, Paul Revere and those killed in the Boston Massacre's graves
George Washington served as a master Mason and remained a Mason until he died. Benjamin Franklin served as the head of the fraternity in Pennsylvania, as did Paul Revere and Joseph Warren in Massachusetts. Other famous Masons include John Hancock, John Sullivan, Lafayette, Baron Fredrick von Stuben, Nathanael Greene, and John Paul Jones. Mason Chief Justice John Marshall, shaped the Supreme Court into its present form. A.j. Santiago
OK! All the people that said Paul Revere rode to warn the peole the British were comming believed wrong!!! He rode to warn Sam Adams and John Hancock that the Brittish were comming. Others were sent to nearby towns BUT, the man that actually rode warning the patriots, over 300 miles, was; Israel Bissel !! So fact is not believed but the poem is. When legend is accepted as truth, people will believe the legend!!!
It was fantastic visiting with John Hancock, Samuel Adams, John Campbell, Deborah Sampson, George Washington, Betsy Ross, Martha Washington, Patrick Henry, Paul Revere, and many others from the Revolutionary period. The whole school came by to visit our 5th grade class and the Living Museum. Well done!!
Paul Revere is riding again, he is currently in Lexington warning John Hancock and Sam Adams that the British have orders to arrest them.
Where are Paul Revere, Sam & John Adams, and John Hancock when you need them!!

Just to name a few and much, much more!! Tune in next week as we review some legendary history of Boston and some interesting fun fact too!! Fun for the whole lot of ya's ! Ding-Ding!!
How many of you believe the story about Paul Revere riding on horseback warning the American rebels that the British were coming. Well I visited Paul Revere's paupers grave in Boston, and talked to the historians at the Boston museum, and found out that Paul Revere was actually a snitch, who rode about four blocks before being captures and snitching out the real Patriots and telling the British where John Hancock, Samuel Adams, and others were hiding. Paul Revere has received hero status in American history, when the truth really is that he was a traitor.
Sophie is reading out loud to me about the Revolutionary War. She read about Paul Revere, John Hancock and Sam Adams. Then there was a long pause."Hey Mom, this guys parents named him after a beer!" Oh dear...
Natural Philosophy or Natural Religion, as well as science, recognize that both masculine and feminine forces are necessary for the Creation of the physical Universe, whether visible or invisible to our senses. Science refers to these two forces as “Light” and “Energy”; ancient and natural religions refer to them as “God and Goddess.” The two can be seen as parts of a Single Whole, which is Creative Energy – Power and Wisdom – aka, God. The underlying philosophy of Freemasonry is a bit more difficult to pin down. It is, after all, a “Secret Society.” Now public, however, are their symbols and ceremonies, most of which are easily decoded with a little knowledge of mythology and ancient history. We also know that that some of the best known participants in the American Revolution were Freemasons: Ethan Allen, Edmund Burke, John Claypool, William Dawes, Benjamin Franklin, John Hancock, John Paul Jones, Robert Livingston, Paul Revere, Colonel Benjamin Tupper, and George Washington. Of the ...
Part 4-More Trouble By 1774, the colonists were not only resisting but actively planning for the inevitable. Because the crown banned public meetings and militias the colonists set up "Committees of Correspondence". Paul Revere became the chief messenger and director of communications between the various groups spread throughout the colonies. He often made long dangerous rides carrying dispatches from the leaders in Boston to New York, Philadelphia and the other colonies. Banning the militias only heightened their activities. What was for years a rag tag group of farmers and shop keepers were now openly arming and training out in the towns and villages. Colonies had also formed provisional governments and holding meetings in open defiance of the law. John Hancock was the president of Massachusetts colonial congress and worked side by side with his chief mentor and aide Sam Adams. General Gage of course knew all of this. Most of the people in the colonies were not for a revolution. Many did not support the ...
The State Museum has helmets on display worn by Ben Franklin, John Hancock, and Paul Revere!
Why did Paul Revere declare "The British Are Coming, The British Are Coming!" (a paraphrase, as most residents considered themselves to be British subjects)? In April 1775, the Crown (bureaucrats of King George) instructed the "Regulars" (British Army) to DISARM and arrest the rebels in Concord, MA. This included eventual Declaration of Independence signers John Adams and John Hancock. The local commander (General Gage) advised his lieutenant to DISARM but not arrest them to prevent an uprising. As the soldiers started their march and search Revere started his ride. DOES ANY OF THIS HISTORY APPEAR TO BE REPEATING ITSELF?
I love Massachusetts. I'm so proud to be born and bred in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. There's just so much to be proud of. The history is lost on us sometimes as we've all taken for granted the elementary school trips to the Freedom Trail and the summer camp trips to Plimoth Plantation. But we're blessed with rich history and a wonderful quality of life. From the arrival of the Pilgrims and Puritans to the establishment of the Massachusetts Bay Colony. From the Salem Witch Trials (1692) to the Boston Tea Party (1773) and Paul Revere's famed "Midnight Ride" (1775)... though we know it was William Dawes who actually alerted John Hancock and Samuel Adams. The First Great Protestant Awakening originated from the pulpit of Northampton preacher Jonathan Edwards. Shays' Rebellion, the populist revolt by farmers that led directly to the United States Constitutional Convention occurred in Petersham and Sheffield. In Gloucester, America's oldest seaport, the first vessel to be called a "schooner" (1713) w ...
Wednesday, January 9— "Boston, Bloody Boston": Boston is under siege. With Parliament quartering troops, closing the colonial legislatures, and blockading Boston Harbor, Sam Adams, Paul Revere, and John Hancock take matters into their own hands...and send a message to Great Britain the world will not soon forget! Join Mr. Staten, the Sons of Liberty, and the scholars of the History Channel for episode one of the epic thirteen-part miniseries The Revolution.
If Masonry started in Great Britain, how did it get to America? In a time when travel was by horseback and sailing ship, Masonry spread with amazing speed. By 1731, when Benjamin Franklin joined the fraternity, there were already several lodges in the Colonies, and Masonry spread rapidly as America expanded west. In addition to Franklin, many of the Founding Fathers - men such as George Washington, Paul Revere, Joseph Warren, and John Hancock - were Masons. Masons and Masonry played an important part in the Revolutionary War and an even more important part in the Constitutional Convention and the debates surrounding the ratification of the Bill of Rights. Many of those debates were held in Masonic lodges.
Enjoy walking together as teams, starting at Boston Common, the “oldest public park” in America . See and visit great sights like Faneuil Hall, Quincy Market & the North End, home of Paul Revere & the Old North Church, where 2 lanterns signalled Paul Revere on his famous Midnight Ride! Your students will learn about famous people, places & historic events like the American Revolution, Boston Massacre, Boston Tea Party and much more! See the gold-domed Massachusetts State House atop Beacon Hill, Granary Burying Ground, where Samuel Adams, Peter Faneuil, John Hancock, Ben Franklin’s parents and Mother Goose are buried, too.
And if we don't get them, we'll need people like Sam Adams, Paul Revere, and John Hancock.
what am i thankful for.Our most Heavenly Father for sending his son to die upon the cross for the forgiveness of our sins.

I am thankful for General George Washington for taking charge and leading this great nation...for the brave men who stood up for what they believed to be right in the founding of this nation...Paul Revere, John Adams, Ben Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, John Hancock, etc...

For my mom, my brother and sister, their families.my Beautiful wife Julie .. ...
Went on a five mile walking tour of Boston with the wife today. Stops included Old North Church, Paul Revere's house, Old South Meeting House, Boston Common, Faneuil Hall, site of the Boston Massacre, the Mather Tomb, the graves of Paul Revere, John Hancock and Samuel Adams, etc. At Old North Church, our guide remarked that Teddy Roosevelt sat in pew box number 25 in 1912. When he was offered a closer seat, TR chuckled and remarked that he wanted to "sit where pirates sat." Dear lord.
U.S. Presidents who were Freemasons George Washington, James Monroe, Andrew Jackson, James Polk, James Buchanan, Abraham Lincoln (inducted postmortem by the lodge that he had petitioned for, and was denied, membership in while running for the U.S. Senate), Andrew Johnson, James Garfield, William Mckinley, Theodore Roosevelt, William Taft, Warren Harding, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Harry Truman, Lyndon Johnson, and Gerald Ford. Famous early Americans who were Freemasons: Benjamin Franklin, John Hancock, Paul Revere, Benedict Arnold, Stephen Austin, Jim Bowie, David Crockett, and Sam Houston. Rudyard Kipling used masonic symbols and characters in some of his writings, most notably The Man Who Would Be King. One of the main characters in Leo Tolstoy's War and Peace becomes a Freemason. The plot of the opera "Die Zauberflšte" ("The Magic Flute") contains several references to Masonic ideals and ceremonies. Mozart and his librettist Emanuel Schikaneder were brothers in the same Masonic lodge. Freemasons, along wi ...

We are on our way home but will detour to visit the Flight 93 Memorial in PA. We must never forget!
Myth: In April of 1775, Paul Revere rode through the streets from Boston to Lexington yelling "The British Are Coming". Fact: First of all, it's not likely Paul Revere ever yelled out the words "The British Are Coming" because the areas he rode through often had British Army patrols and besides most of the colonials of the time considered themselves British and were loyal to the crown. The purpose of the ride was to warn John Hancock and Samuel Adams who were in Lexington at the time. He did inform others along the way but not by yelling in the streets. Also, Paul Revere was not the only rider to make the trip. William Dawes and Samuel Prescott also made the ride and in fact Prescott was the only one of the three to make it to Concord (the location of their weapons stores where they thought the British Army was ultimately headed). Revere was caught and detained by a British patrol and was left horseless to walk back to Lexington. Revere was barely even known until Henry Wadsworth Longfellow published his ...
Went on a night haunted trolley tour of Boston Wednesday night. We went into the burial ground of John Hancock and Paul Revere. Lo and behold a ghost of Paul Revere and his horse appeared!! Only this time patriot Paul was yelling,"The liberals are coming! The liberals are coming"! : )
I'm on a tour of some brewery in Boston. John Hancock or Paul Revere or something like that.
When you look at the Freedom Trail Tour many of the great figures were Masons and/or Knights Templar. Paul Revere, Sam Adams, Ben Franklin, Livingston, Dawes, John Hancock, George Washington, and Col Ben Tupper to name a few.
On April 18, 1775 John Adams and John Hancock were at the home of Rev. Jonas Clarke, a Lexington pastor and militia leader. That same night Paul Revere arrived to warn them of the approaching Redcoats. The next morning British Major Pitcairn shouted to an assembled regiment of Minutemen; "Disperse, ye villains, lay down your arms in the name of George the Sovereign King of England." The immediate response of Rev. Jonas Clarke or one of his company was: "We recognize no Sovereign but God and no King but Jesus."
King George, who believed (rightly so) that ministers were playing a leading role in the war for American Independence, feared not only the preaching but also the exemplary leadership of these men of God. It was therefore fitting that such a pastor as Jonas Clark should have a place so prominent in the beginning of America’s fight for freedom. The Battles of Lexington and Concord, two battles that took place on April 18th, 1775, occurred because the British troops were closing in to capture John Hancock and Samuel Adams. These men had, however,while staying at the home of Jonas, been previously warned of the Brits intentions and safely fled, thanks to the midnight ride of Paul Revere. This wasn’t, however, to stop the deacons and churchmen of Pastor Jonas Clark from bravely shuffling out in file to oppose the aggressors and formally begin what was inevitable.
today I went to a saw the graves of Paul Revere, Sam Adams and John Hancock, bought a "Don't Tread on Me" flag and visited a pirate museum. Sleeping tonight in a log mansion.

Time line for Independence Day July 4th Benjamin Franklin 1774 - The 13 colonies send delegates to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to form the First Continental Congress. While unrest was brewing, the colonies were far from ready to declare war. April 1775 - King George's troops advance on Concord, Massachusetts, prompting Paul Revere's midnight ride that sounded the alarm: "The British are coming, the British are coming." Thus began the American Revolution at the battle of Concord. May 1776 - After nearly a year of trying to settle their differences with England, the colonies, once again, send delegates to the Second Continental Congress. June 1776 - Admitting that their efforts were hopeless, a committee was formed to compose the formal Declaration of Independence. Headed by Thomas Jefferson, the committee also included John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Philip Livingston and Roger Sherman. June 28, 1776 - Jefferson presents the first draft of the declaration to congress. July 4, 1776 - After various changes to ...
I now understand what great Americans like Paul Revere, Samuel Adams and John Hancock felt like in 1765. Taxation without representation is alive and well, folks.
