Samuel Adams, in my opinion, was one of the greatest American revolutionaries – a leader in the nullification of the Stamp Act, a leading role in the events that led up to the Boston Tea Party, a member of the Continental Congress and much more.
And here’s my favorite, and possibly most famous, Sam Adams quote:
“It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people’s minds.”
