WHO: PAUL REVERE

1735-1818

His engraving of the Boston Massacre (March 5, 1770) was a powerful propaganda tool against the British and enflamed anti-British feelings.

As an early supporter of independence, he participated in the Boston Tea Party.

He is most famous for his "midnight ride" to Lexington, Massachusetts spreading the word that the British were on the move.

He also warned Sam Adams and John Hancock that they were in danger of being arrested by the British, which enabled them to get away.

He was made famous by the poem "Paul Revere's Ride" by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.

He was a prominent silversmith and artist and also made bells - many of which are still in use today in New England.
