Explore in depth Paul Revere's 1770 print "British Ships of War Landing Their Troops, 1768"

The engraving depicts the landing of British troops in the town in 1768, after colonial resistance to the passage of the Townshend Acts, which established new taxes and restrictions on the colonists, prompted the British monarchy to take steps to ensure compliance.

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.
