Samuel Adams: Father of the American Revolution by Mark Puls

Winner of the 2007 Fraunces Tavern Museum Book Award!

Samuel Adams is perhaps the most unheralded and overshadowed of the founding fathers, yet without him there would have been no American Revolution. A genius at devising civil protests and political maneuvers that became a trademark of American politics, Adams astutely forced Britain into coercive military measures that ultimately led to the irreversible split in the empire. His remarkable political career addresses all the major issues concerning America's decision to become a nation -- from the notion of taxation without representation to the Declaration of Independence. George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams all acknowledged that they built our nation on Samuel Adams' foundations. Now, in this riveting biography, his story is finally told and his crucial place in American history is fully recognized.


 In Samuel Adams: Father of the American Revolution, Mark Puls resurrects the true historical importance of Samuel Adams. This fascinating, engaging book most definitely deserves to join other recent histories and biographies of the Revolutionary period as a bestseller.
