History - 自由之子 Sons of Liberty

山姆亞當斯、約翰漢考克、約翰亞當斯、保羅瑞維爾、約瑟夫瓦倫醫生 - 這些傳奇人物被譽為《自由之子》,他們的名字伴隨著自由之聲久久回蕩。這些年輕的激進分子有著不同的背景,他們站起來對抗殖民者的壓迫,組織地下抗議行動,震撼國民,並領導了一場偉大的革命,最終以戰爭締造了全新的民主國家。
 
在美國立國之前,老一輩保皇派雖仍效忠英國國王,但有一群叛逆激進的年輕人即將祕密結盟,扭轉歷史。他們是山姆.亞當斯、約翰.漢考克、約翰.亞當斯、保羅.瑞維爾、約瑟夫.瓦倫醫生,被譽為「自由之子」。雖然這些名字後來成為美國的傳奇人物,但很少人知道,他們並非天生就是高尚的愛國者。這群新世代的美國青年出身背景不同,卻都在摸索著生存之道。從最早對當局的小小試探,到後來演變成地下抗爭運動,這些行動刺激了英國開始採用極權手段,暴力鎮壓殖民地以維持秩序,儼然是一個警察國家。在血流成河的波士頓大屠殺之後,「自由之子」開始招兵買馬,矢志完成更大使命。他們潛入地下打游擊戰,建立間諜情報網,囤積武器,策劃波士頓茶黨和列辛頓與康科德戰役等祕密行動,一直到最後宣佈獨立,締造世界歷史上最偉大的自由之役。 
 
SONS OF LIBERTY follows a defiant and radical group of young men–Sam Adams, John Adams, Paul Revere, John Hancock and Dr. Joseph Warren–as they band together in secrecy to change the course of history and make America a nation.  Before America was one nation, an aging generation of British loyalists maintained diplomacy with the King, but a defiant and radical group of young men would band together in secrecy to change the course of history. Sam Adams, John Adams, Paul Revere, John Hancock and Dr. Joseph Warren. Together, they were The Sons of Liberty. Though their names have become American legend, few realize that this group of young radicals didn't start as noble patriots. They were a new American generation of young men from varied backgrounds trying to figure out what to do with their lives. What began as a small testing of authority would become an underground protest movement, inciting the British to respond with totalitarian tactics, cracking down on the colonies and instituting a near police state to maintain order. But after blood was spilled at the Boston Massacre, the Sons of Liberty rallied support for a larger cause. The Sons became guerilla warriors working underground, establishing spy networks, stockpiling weapons and planning covert actions - from the Boston Tea Party to the Battle of Lexington and Concord - that would lead to a declaration of independence and the greatest fight for freedom the world has ever seen.
