Happy Birthday Samuel Adams; 1722 - 1803

On September 27, 1722, the man that uttered these words was born.

If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude
greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us
in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down
and lick the hand that feeds you; May your chains set lightly upon
you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.
—Samuel Adams

What better way to honor him then to read about him, try here and here.
