My American Revolutionary War research has led to an investigation of the Sons of Liberty (SAR). This organization was known to erect Liberty Poles (see picture) as a way of angering Britain in a show of independence, but also when they called meetings.
They were wooden poles with a "Liberty Hat" or ribbon on top. They were also a way of replacing the then famous "Liberty Trees" for meetings if no large tree was available.
The most notable one was erected after the repeal of the Stamp Act in New York City in 1766.
I am curious if any are still standing today or exist in commemorative places (or even museums) in the US?
