What activities did the sons of liberty and the and the daughters of liberty organize?
Like other secret clubs at the time, the Sons of Liberty had many rituals. They had secret code words, medals, and symbols. Originally formed in response to the Stamp Act, their activities were far more than ceremonial. It was the Sons of Liberty who ransacked houses of British officials. Threats and intimidation were their weapons against tax collectors, causing many to flee town. Images of unpopular figures might be hanged and burned in effigy on the town’s LIBERTY TREE. Offenders might be covered in warm tar and blanketed in a coat of feathers.
