Paul Revere

Everyone remembers Paul Revere by his quote, "The British are coming" but Paul Revere did a lot more than say that quote. While we present our amazing flyer we hope everyone learns one thing about Paul Revere.

Bio and Early Life

Paul Revere was born January 1, 1735 in Boston, Massachusetts. He was the third of twelve children. When he was nineteen his father died. In 1757 he married his first wife, Sarah Orne and he had a total of 16 children. Paul had an education at Bostons North Writing School.

Role in Revolution

On the evening of April 18, 1775, Paul Revere was sent by Dr. Joseph Warren to ride to Lexington, Massachusetts to warn Samuel Adams and John Hancock about the British. The moment in history is called the Battle of Lexington, and its also called Paul Revere's Ride. He was also the Lieutenant of artillery and he also manufactured gunpowder and cannons. Without Paul Revere the British would have won the Battle of Lexington and the Patriots would have lost.

Important Accomplishments

After the Revolutionary War Paul Revere did some amazing things. One of the things he did was produce the worlds first paper money. He expanded his Silversmith business, opened the countries first copper rolling mill, made copper spikes for ships, and became a pioneer. One thing that we were surprised about is that he was an amateur dentist.
