About Paul Revere
Paul Revere was born on December 21, 1734 in the North End of Boston. He was a silversmith by profession but was also enlisted in the provincial army during French-Indian War in 1756. Apart from being a silversmith, he was also recognized for being a highly skilled engraver and watchmaker. According to the documents, Paul constructed around 5000 products during his life, which contains some elegant buckles, buttons, rings, and beads. He died on May 10 in year 1818, at the age of 83. He is buried on Tremont Street in the Granary Burying Ground.
Observing 18th April as Paul Revere Day
Keeping in view that Paul Revere was neither born on April 18 nor did he die on the same date, one might possibly look for the point in associating this day with him. The reason is that, it was April 18 in 1775 when he rode on horseback all the way from Charleston to Lexington to warn the colonists about the approaching British.
Celebrating Paul Revere Day
Since Paul Revere was an American patriot who made a historic contribution in American Revolution, the best way to celebrate this day is by giving him the rightful tribute. There should be some declamations in schools, colleges, and universities about his efforts and gatherings in government offices.
