From their website:
"SONS OF LIBERTY is a dramatic interpretation of events that sparked a revolution. It is historical fiction, not a documentary. The goal of our miniseries is to capture the spirit of the time, convey the personalities of the main characters, and focus on real events that have shaped our past. For historical information about the Sons of Liberty and the dawning of the American Revolution, please read the Historian’s View section on history.com/sons."
Was the series historically inaccurate? Yes. Was too much artistic license taken? Maybe. Yes, I know it's the History Channel and should be historically accurate, but in creating the series that they did and with the actors that they chose, it could have been a move to try and reach a larger audience. The series they created was engaging enough that those who had just a passing interest in history would have continued watching. Many, many times throughout the aired hours, the history channel kept saying "go to our website" because the facts aren't necessarily depicted in the drama. The information on the site is sparse, but sometimes that small bit of interest is enough to spark a thirst for history.
