Fear & Force: New York City’s Sons of Liberty – On view now through July 2020 – Mesick Gallery, FRAUNCES TAVERN® MUSEUM
We may not like paying taxes but we would never think to tar and feather the tax collector. Yet as many of the colonists prepared for what would be the American Revolution, there was an organized group who opposed the government through violent resistance. Come see objects preserved from pivotal moments relating to the New York Sons of Liberty, like the tearing down of the King George Statue in Bowling Green Park, and throwing chests of tea into the New York Harbor.
