Biography Paul Revere, Jr.
Paul Revere, a silversmith and engraver, is far, far more famous for his ride on horseback warning the colonists that the British were coming at the time of the Revolutionary War.
He was born in Boston, Massachusetts in 1735, learning silver-smithing from his father. Revere turned to engraving about 1765, and, over the years, engraved bills, money, musical scores, title pages, political prints, portraits and scenic views. He was also a copper worker, bell caster, and watercolorist.
His most famous graphic work, the multi-colored Boston Massacre (1770), was probably based on Peter Pelham's depiction of the event. Revere printed Massachusetts's paper currency and treasurer's notes in 1775-76, during the Revolutionary War
