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.
