Event description
Paul Revere: Fact or Fiction? Understanding the truth behind this legendary figure.

About this Event

Most people know Paul Revere for his famous ride to Lexington on the night of April 19, 1775. Revere’s life, however, was a long and productive one, involving industry, politics, and community service. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow ’s poem, “Paul Revere’s Ride", written in 1860, transformed Paul Revere from a relatively obscure, although locally known figure into a national folk hero, but how much about Paul Revere and the Midnight Ride is fact, and how much is fiction?

Find the answers in this collaborative program led by Robert Shimp, Research and Adult Program Director for the Paul Revere Memorial Association and Michael Maler, Metro-Boston Regional Site Administrator for Historic New England.
