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.

Samuel Adams More Popular as Beer

many people often Mistook Patriot Samuel Adams as the inventor of the famous Bostonian Beer Company that Makes Samuel Adams Beer, although Samuel Adams did make home brewed beer in his time, the Samuel Adams Beer was only started in 1984 by a local Bostonian beer campany and now is the largest American Owned Beer Company (Budwieser is now owned by Stella Artois so it is not an american owned company now) and these local Bostonians named their beer Samuel Adams to honor him.

Samuel Adams is knowned one of the founding fathers and is alleged to be the promoter of the Boston Tea Party (not the Tea Party Republicans ok!) in 1773, he has a statue in front of Faneuil Hall where he attended many of the Boston Town meetings for independence during his period. He lies Buries in the Granary Burying Ground Beside the Boston Common.
