Historical Setting: Boston, 1760s- 1770s A. D.

In the early days of America, when men wore ruffles on their shirts, rode horseback, and swore allegiance to the King of England, there lived a man in Boston who cared for none of these things. Samuel Adams turned up his nose at ruffles, wouldn't get on a horse, and hated the King of England. No one expected him to change his mind about the king or about frilly clothes, but his friends did think he might get on a horse. But would he? Never! he said.
