There we learned both Latin and Greek. When Samuel was 14, he attended Harvard College, as most graduates of Boston Latin school went. He got his bachelor's degree in 1740 and a Master degree in arts.Sam helped repeal the Sugar and the Stamp act. When the Parliament were placing all the taxes on things, Adams started the Sons of Liberty. They fought back against the British Parliament and contributed to the Boston Tea Party.Sadly, on October 2, 1803, Samuel Adams passed away. In his life he did so much for America and helped make it a free country. Sam is buried at the Granary Burying Grounds in Boston, MA with John Hancock, and Robert Paine.
