Trim your tree with history with Paul Revere. Paul Revere was an American silversmith, engraver, early industrialist, and Patriot in the American Revolution and principal rider for Boston's Committee of Safety. In that role, he devised a system of lanterns to warn the minutemen of a British invasion, setting up his famous ride on April 18, 1775. Bring the story of his infamous midnight ride into your home!
