Both were born in Massachusets and helped lead the way through the American revolution. Both led opposition to the Sugar Act of 1764 and the Stamp Act of 1765 and were driving forces behind the Boston Tea Party. Both were original members of the Sons of Liberty and the Continental Congress and went on to sign the Declaration of Independence in 1776. John went on to be the second President of the United States and Samuel...well he had a beer named after him. Which of the patriots should feel more honored?
