Excerpt from Elizabeth Schuyler: A Story of Old New York

Revolution was seething in New York as well as Massachusetts and Virginia and throughout the country for several years before the war began for the independence of the thirteen colonies. Unjust decrees of despotic governors were stoutly resisted. When the stamp act was repealed the Sons of Lib etty erected a liberty pole, which served as the bat tle ground when British soldiers attempted to de stroy it. Fresh impositions, new outrages on the part of the British government aroused the peo ple, and the Sons of Liberty shouted defiance to measures which curtailed their rights. Handbills were circulated and John Lamb was chosen to pre side over a public meeting in the Fields.
