Sam Adams begins feeling the pressure of taxes as most colonists feel during the American Revolution. Taking a job as a tax broker but feeling no ability to take the people's money, sam is considered an outlaw and on the run. John Hancock offers Sam an opportunity to get out of it... for a price. The governor halts Hancock's selling of alcohol and Hancock recruits Sam, Paul Revere, and others to help smuggle in his production. As the story progresses the people begin retaliating again the British and pressuring the English military to take action.
