Jack Perkins hosts this look at famed industrialist, revolutionary, Sons of Liberty founder and midnight rider Paul Revere.
Although most people remember Paul Revere as the patriot who went on a midnight ride to warn Americans that the British were coming, much else about his fascinating life hasn't been explored. This in-depth "Biography" profile of Revere concentrates on his many other activities on behalf of American independence. As leader of the Sons of Liberty, he performed courageous work as a courier and a spy; he also used his skills as a silversmith to create powerful tools of propaganda against British rulers. The program goes on to follow Revere's life as he became a colonel in the Continental Army and, later, a successful entrepreneur.
