b. 9-27-1722; Boston, MA
d. 10-2-1803; Boston, MA

Founding Father Samuel Adams, a second cousin of John Adams, was active in the Sons of Liberty and instrumental in shaping the political will to separate from England, as well as keeping the flame under events like the Boston Massacre and Boston Tea Party. Adams was also a “maltser”, someone who prepared the malt for brewing beer.

Samuel Adams quotes ~
• “Our contest is not only whether we ourselves shall be free, but whether there shall be left to mankind an asylum on earth for civil and religious liberty.”
• “He who is void of virtuous attachments in private life is, or very soon will be, void of all regard for his country. There is seldom an instance of a man guilty of betraying his country, who had not before lost the feeling of moral obligations in his private connections.”
• “Mankind are governed more by their feelings than by reason.”
• “It does not take a majority to prevail... but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men.”
• “Among the natural rights of the colonists are these: First a right to life, secondly to liberty, and thirdly to property;together with the right to defend them in the best manner they can.”

He conspired with British officer, John Andre (1750-1780) to turn the strategic Hudson River fortifications at West Point over to the British. The plot was discovered - Arnold escaped and Andre was executed.

Benedict Arnold quote ~
• “Neglected by Congress below, distressed with the small-pox; want of Generals and discipline in our Army, which may rather be called a great rabble, our credit and reputation lost, and great part of the country; and a powerful foreign enemy advancing upon us, are so many difficulties we cannot surmount them.”

Ann Eliza Bleecker

Ann Eliza Bleecker
(née Schuyler)
b. October, 1752; NYC, Province of New York
d. 11-23-1783; Albany

The lives of the Bleecker family were interrupted by the American Revolution - in 1777 the British troops under John Burgoyne lead John Bleecker to join the New York militia and Ann Eliza to flee their home north of Albany with their two young daughters. The war took a huge personal toll on Eliza's family, (mother, sister, youngest daughter died, and a miscarriage) and she died at age 31.

Born into the privilege and wealth of American Dutch aristocracy, she had her talents as a writer recognized and encouraged by her family. Her husband, John Bleecker (1745-1795), a former lawyer turned gentleman farmer, also supported what he called “her genius”.

Ann Eliza Bleecker's work was published posthumously by her surviving daugher Margaretta, also a writer.
