14 Secret Societies From History That You Would Want To Join

2. Sons Of Liberty

What Is It:
They met at night under the Liberty Tree in Boston. The Sons of Liberty, dating back to 1765, were a secret society that resisted British rule over the American colonies. In a single night of rioting against a British loyalist, they caused £2,200 worth of damage.

Famous Sons of Liberty:

Samuel Adams
Paul Revere
Benedict Arnold

Why You Should Join:

Most secret societies can’t claim responsibility for a revolution (okay, maybe the Illuminati). The Sons of Liberty carried out the Boston Tea Party in 1773, which became a catalyst for the American Revolution.
