A pseudonym Samuel Adams wrote under when writing political commentary on the actions of the British, used notably when he was writing an Editorial From the Boston Gazette, January 21, 1771, which was a response to the Boston Massacre. For the most part, writing incognito to his local newspaper served as a sounding board for his radical political views during the period he was Boston's tax collector. People would actually read the rants and raves, despite being remarked by modern standards to be too damn long. By this means he managed to become a chief promoter of anti-British propaganda in Boston, and he later of course founded the Sons of Liberty, participated in the Boston Tea Party, and eventually, after provoking a Revolutionary War, even manage to relegitimize the formally bankrupt Sam Adams Beer.
