    Samuel Adams' Tombstone

    At the Granary Burying Ground, you will find the grave of Samuel Adams. Adams was one of the most influential people during the revolution. Besides that, he made decent beer.

    His tombstone reads:
    Here lies buried Samuel Adams. Signer of the Declaration of Independence. Governor of the Commonwealth. A leader of men and an ardent patriot. Born 1722. Died 1803. Massachusetts Society. Sons of the Revolution.

    Statue of Samuel Adams

    If you are walking to Fanuel Hall from the Government Center T-stop you are bound to see the statue of Samuel Adams. The statue itself is made of bronze and rests upon a granit pedastil. The story behind Samuel Adams' pose is that he had demanded the governmer of the time remove the British troops from Boston following the Boston Massacre. Supposedly Mr. Adams assumed this pose while he was awaiting an answer from Governer Hutchinson. Each of the four panels around the statue reads something different.

    'Samuel Adams 1722-1803 - A Patriot - He organized the Revolution, and signed the Declaration of Independence.

    Governor - A True Leader of the People.

    Erected A. D. 1880, from a fund bequeathed to the city of Boston by Jonathan Phillips.

    A statesman, incorruptible and fearless.' (Celebrate Boston, 2010).

    Whether you view the statue cause you love the story behind or because you are a history buff, you are bound to want to take you picture in front of it as our boys did.
