    learned more about our hero

    Paul Revere....Living in Boston, I saw his name everywhere I go;such as name of the near-by-town, name of the beach, name of the street, name of the transportation company, etc... I also knew he was, in fact, from Boston and famous silversmith who did a famous midnight ride to Lexington and told Minutes Men that British were coming.... But those were only my knowledge about him. Anyway, after I read this book, I realized that how interesting Paul Revere was and how important he was during and after the revolution. We was not only the silversmith, he was also good businessman, political activist, soldier, and more..He was actually involved in many significant events. Maybe he is much more interesting historic figure than Ben Franklin, George Washington or any other revolutionists.
