  • Notes 
    • Samuel was educated at Harvard. He vigorously persued independence which won
      him popularity in Massachusetts. It was generally agreed that he did more than
      any other man in Massachusetts to swing public opinion in favor of the
      revolution through his many newspaper articles. He and John Hancock were the
      only men excluded from General Gage's offer of general amnesty June 12, 1775.
      Samuel served as governor of Massachusetts from 1794-1797.
