Summary
Paul Revere is commonly remembered as a Revolutionary War hero for his legendary Midnight Ride before the 1775 battes of Lexington and Concord. But Revere was also a famed silversmith, a practicing dentist, a resourceful entrepreneur, and an engraver of cartoons and paper money. This biography traces Revere's life from his humble beginnings as a French immigrant's son to his determined support of the rebel cause in the stormy years leading up to the American Revolution
