Boston was at the forefront of the Colonial rebellion prior to the American Revolutionary War. Many of the acts of violence and resistance occurred in and around Boston. Boston was also the home base to a secret society of dissidents called the Sons of Liberty (first known as The Loyal Nine). Their aim was to protect the rights of the colonists and to fight the abuses of taxation by the British government. They were not opposed to acts of violence to get their point across.

Though they were speaking out against the actions of the British government, they still claimed to be loyal to the Crown. The Sons of Liberty professed continued loyalty to the King because they maintained a “fundamental confidence” in the expectation that Parliament would do the right thing and repeal the new taxes.

In the late 1700’s, the American colonies lived under British rule, had a great relationship with England, trade was healthy, and the colonies prospered. In the meantime, England had fought a long and victorious war with France and had accumulated a lot of debt that they needed to repay.

To do that, King George and Parliament put aggressive taxes in place that other British citizens did not have to pay. These new taxes enraged the colonists.

A radical movement formed in Boston called the Sons of Liberty for the purpose of protesting the taxes through violence and intimidation. They were very effective and were instrumental in getting act such as the Stamp Act, and others, repealed.

The Boston Massacre, was an incident on March 5, 1770, in which British Army soldiers killed 5 male civilians and injured 6 others. The incident was heavily propagandized by leading Patriots, such as Paul Revere and Samuel Adams, to fuel animosity toward the British authorities. Amid ongoing tense relations between the population and the soldiers, a mob formed around a British sentry, who was subjected to verbal abuse and harassment. He was eventually supported by 8 additional soldiers, who were subjected to verbal threats and thrown objects. They fired into the crowd, without orders, instantly killing 3 people and wounding others. 2 more people died later of wounds sustained in the incident.

The colonist responded by dumping three ship loads of tea in Boston Harbor.

In the spring of 1775, most of the MA Patriot leaders had taken refuge in outlying communities, fearing arrest by British officials. Remaining in Boston were two physicians, Benjamin Church and Joseph Warren, local colonial leaders. Paul Revere, a trusted messenger, also stayed in the city, tended his business interests and as unobtrusively as possible, kept an eye on the soldiers stationed in the city.

Revere agreed to arrange for the placement of signal lanterns in the belfry of Old North Church where they could have been easily seen across the Charles River. If one lantern were displayed, the British would be advancing by land over the Boston Neck, then north and west to Concord. If two lanterns were hung, the redcoats would have chosen to cross the Charles by boat to Cambridge, then west to their target.
