Samuel Adams, labeled the "father of the American Revolution" by William Wells, may have been neglected in the history books of America. "There is no doubt that without him the prerevolutionary protests of Massachusetts would have been muted considerably." Yet even to this day Smuel Adams is not given an important place in history. It is interesting that in 1777, before the Battle of Bunker Hill, General Gage, commander of the British groops, was authised by the king to pardon all patriots who would serve the kings, except samuel adams and John Fancock.
