Samuel Adams He helped start The Sons of Liberty to protest the Stamp Act.
The Sugar Act This act lowered the tax on imported molasses. The British was hoping that this would stop the smuggling of goods, and it let officers seize goods from smugglers without going to court.
The Townshend Acts This tax applied only to imported goods such as glass, tea, and paper with the tax being paid at point of entry into the colonies.
Daughters of Liberty They encouraged people to wear homemade fabrics and make their own goods.
