The British King George is becoming a tyrant. You must work with Samuel Adams, founder of the Sons of Liberty, to deliver and decode his cryptic messages to the Sons of Liberty chapters. So they can act as one, powerful voice against Britain and its policy of passing laws and taxes without colonist representation.
The rights of the Patriots are being taken daily. King George and his loyal Tories are becoming more aggressive by the day. Any resistance is being punished severely. Samuel Adams is trusting you to get his coded messages, pictures, and even a page from Benjamin Franklin's Poor Richard's Alamanack, to the Sons of Liberty without getting caught and exposing your plans. This would certain lead to treason charges and hanging for all of you.
