Paul Revere
Date: 1735 - 1818
Remarks: Paul Revere, one of the foremost silversmiths in New England, became a very strong anti-British advocator in the years prior to the Revolutionary War. A member of the Sons of Liberty, Revere was also a participant in the Boston Tea Party. Revere is most famous for his midnight ride on April 18, 1775, (immortalized by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow), during which Revere and others spread the word of the British arrival through Massachusetts. Revere continued his work as a silversmith, expanding to other industries such as work in copper and brass, until his death in 1818. -Source: http://www.bartleby.com/65/re/Revere-P.html
