WHY PAUL REVEREIS IMPORTANT
  • On the night of April 18 -19, 1775, just hours before the battles of Lexington and Concord, Revere performed his "Midnight Ride"
  • He and William Dawes were instructed by Dr. Joseph Warren to ride from Boston to Lexington to warn John Hancock and Samuel Adams of the movements of the British Army, which was beginning a march from Boston to Lexington
  • Riding through present-day Somerville, Medford, and Arlington, Revere warned patriots along his route - many of whom set out on horseback to deliver warnings of their own
  • everyone to this day thinks of him and "The Noble One"
  • The picture on the right is a statue of him in boston

AFTERTHE WAR
  • After the war, finding the silver trade difficult in the ensuing depression, Revere opened a hardware and home goods store and later became interested in metal work beyond gold and silver
  • Revere died on May 10, 1818, at the age of 83, at his home on Charter Street in Boston. He is buried in the Old Granary Burying Ground on Tremont Street, today
