One if by land, two if by tea? Drink up before taking that Midnight Ride. This commemorative mug celebrates the special exhibition Beyond Midnight: Paul Revere, an unparalleled examination of Revere’s many skills as a craftsman and his entrepreneurial spirit as an early American artisan who stood at the intersection of social, economic, and political life during the formation of the new nation.
The patriot, silversmith, and entrepreneur Paul Revere was forever immortalized in Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s 1861 poem, “Paul Revere’s Ride,” but his genuine accomplishments are often eclipsed by the legend of the midnight journey. This groundbreaking exhibition (September 6, 2019—January 12, 2020), featuring more than 150 objects, re-examines Revere’s accomplishments.
