Paul Revere, the Myth and the Man ~ Historical Society Program Follows Potluck and Annual Meeting on May 19

Submitted by the Bedford Historical Society

How did Boston silversmith and bell-maker Paul Revere end up riding to alert the countryside in April, 1775 that “the British are coming?”

It makes sense that he rode to give this alert, since he was an express rider for the Boston Committee of Correspondence and the MA Committee of Safety in 1774 and 1775, and carried news, messages, and copies of important documents from Boston as far away as New York and Philadelphia. These facts and others will be presented by the Bedford Historical Society’s guest speaker, Frank Rigg, following the Society’s Potluck Supper and Annual Meeting on Sunday, May 19, 2019 in Upper Fellowship Hall of the First Church of Christ, Congregational, 25 The Great Rd., Bedford.
