Paul Revere


Paul Revere (1735-1818) was an American silversmith born in the British colony of Massachusetts. He was an active member of the Sons of Liberty during the American Revolution (c. 1765-1789) and became a folk hero for his midnight ride in 1775 when he warned the colonial militias of the approaching British troops before the Battles of Lexington and Concord.
