The Loyal Nine

The Loyal Nine was a secret society that started meeting at Chase & Speakman’s distillery near the Liberty Tree. Their meetings and mission began as early as 1765 and were aimed at organizing protest movements in Boston against the laws of the British government. It’s members were responsible for the Stamp Act Riots that occurred in 1765. Most textbooks and encyclopedias don’t mention the Loyal Nine, but they should be noted because they were the first group to openly defy Parliament and King George. In fact, the Loyal Nine formed the Sons of Liberty, which was the foundation for democracy in America.
