FactIn the early 1980's was named last of the great rock and roll piano players by Keyboard Magazine.

Paul Revere was born in Boston, Massachusetts on December 21, 1734. His parents were Apollos Rivoire, a French Huguenot immigrant, and Deborah Hitchborn, a native of Massachusetts. He had eight siblings, seven of whom survived to adulthood. Revere was educated at the North Grammar School and Boston Latin School. He apprenticed with his father from 1748 to 1751 and then with goldsmith John Coney.

Revere’s career began as a silversmith. He became a master in 1756 and opened his own shop in 1757. He began to produce his own silverware in 1768. In 1770, he married Sarah Orne, with whom he had eight children.

Revere’s career as a silversmith was interrupted by the American Revolution. He served as a lieutenant colonel in the Massachusetts militia and as a messenger for the Sons of Liberty. On April 18, 1775, he made his famous ride from Boston to Lexington to warn the colonists that the British were coming. The ride made him a hero of the Revolution.

After the war, Revere returned to his silversmith business. He also became involved in several other businesses, including copper mining, iron foundries, and dentistry. He also served as the first Grand Master of the Massachusetts Freemasons.

Revere died of natural causes on May 10, 1818, at the age of 83. His legacy as a patriot and a silversmith endures to this day.
