Sam Adams Sam Adams was among the patriots who helped to convert Hancock (and his money) to
the revolutionary cause. The evil Brits came to Lexington and tried to capture Sam Adams and Hancock, but they escaped and
the Revolution had begun.
John Adams was one of John Hancock's best friends. Having such a powerful friend helped Hancock gain respect from other
prominent figures of the Revolution.
Foes (not worthy of pictures)
Francis Bernard, the evil Royal Governor of Massachusetts, didn't treat the mighty John Hancock with the respect that he deserved
to be treated with. When the Massachusetts General Court recommended that John Hancock join the Governor's council, the evil
Francis Bernard didn't allow him to join. Bernard, being the evil, corrupt, British-loving man that he was, had a personal
vendetta against Hancock becasue he didn't approve of Hancock smuggling in non-British goods.
King George was the evil tyrant that started the Revolution. All the taxes that King George imposed took a lot of money out
of Hancock's pocket. The trend of the colonies was to hate King George, and John Hancock was a very trendy man. Smuggling
in non-British goods was a great way for Hancock to annoy the evil tyrant that was King George.
