Questions and Answers
Question: Was Paul Revere always well-known for his midnight ride?
Answer: No. Paul Revere was remembered in Boston for his heroic act, but nationally, he’d been largely forgotten until Henry Wadsworth Longfellow wrote and published his poem, “Paul Revere’s Midnight Ride.” Revere’s life was notable for other things besides his ride: Revere had 16 children.
He was a well-respected businessman and silver smith. He believed that every man should learn a trade. He was also involved in community and political life.
