Paul Revere. His name evokes images of the famous “Midnight Ride” ride of April 18-19, 1775. But there is so much more to the man than his famous ride. He was a Master Goldsmith specializing in working with silver. He cut copper plates depicting famous events on the eve of the American Revolution. He made false teeth! He was a Son of Liberty and a Freemason. He was a Lt. Colonel in the Massachusetts Militia during the war though his service was fraught with disappointments. After the war, he became one of America’s first industrialists, casting church bells, cannon, and rolling copper in his mills in Boston and Canton, Massachusetts. Most importantly, he was a devoted husband and father. Hear his story as told by historical interpreter, Michael Lepage, culminating with that night in April of 1775 when he spread the alarm “to every Middlesex village and farm” that “the regulars were coming out!”
