Paul Revere

Barbara J. Feldman

Paul Revere (1735 – 1818) was an American patriot best known for riding on a borrowed horse from Boston to Lexington on April 18, 1775 to warn the colonists that British troops were approaching. The next day, when the British arrived in Lexington, the colonial minutemen were waiting for them. [Editor’s Note: A more recent version of this topic can be found here: Paul Revere.]
