How did Boston silversmith Paul Revere end up riding to alert the countryside that “the British are coming” in April 1775? How many know that Paul Revere was an express rider for the Boston Committee of Correspondence and the MA Committee of Safety in 1774 and 1775, to carry news, messages, and copies of important documents from Boston as far away as New York and Philadelphia?
These facts and others will be offered when retired John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum Curator Frank Rigg talks about the impact and legacy of Paul Revere’s historic ride. – Click this link to learn more!
