While Paul Revere is well known for the events immortalized in Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s 1861 poem "Paul Revere’s Ride," his life's accomplishments are significantly broader. This exhibit comprises more than 150 objects from the American Antiquarian Society collection that explore Revere's life and showcase his work as a silversmith, printmaker and pioneering copper manufacturer.
