Paul Revere's Ride - Book

by David Hackett Fischer
Category: "U.S. History - Military"
Year of Publication:1994
Date Read:10/02/1994
Notes:Fischer fashions an exciting narrative that offers deep insight into the outbreak of revolution and the emergence of the American republic. Beginning in the years before the war, Fischer illuminates the figure of Paul Revere, a man far more complex than the simple artisan and messenger of tradition. Drawing on intensive new research, Fischer guides readers through the world of Boston's revolutionary movement, recreates the fateful events of April 18th and provides a fresh interpretation of the battle that began the war at Lexington and Concord. Fischer includes a Historiography title "Myths After the Midnight Ride" that looks at the way Americans have looked at Paul Revere in the years since the war — from mythical hero to politically incorrect dead white male.
