Paul Revere did more than just ride a horse and warn people that the British were coming! He was also a silversmith, a spy, a father, an activist, a husband, and more. This book shows the real person side of Paul Revere.
After reading The Revolutionary Paul Revere by Joel J. Miller, I can truthfully say that I know a lot more about Paul Revere than most people. The book begins with information about Paul’s parents and ends with Paul’s death at age 83 in 1818. The Revolutionary Paul Revere is a well documented book about the life of Paul Revere, the events leading up to the revolutionary war, the war, and post-war.
In college, history was my worst subject mainly because I found it boring. Things would have been different if my history books read like Joel’s book. The book tells of the personal and family struggles that Paul went through. In addition to his personal struggles, Paul seems to have always been in or near where the action was all his life. I gained more insight into the struggles that the colonies experienced and the hardships that they endured. There were things in this book that I never heard in any of my American history classes.
The Revolutionary Paul Revere is easy to read and flows well. I found the book both enjoyable and informative. I would recommend this book to anybody who wants to learn more about this American statesman.
The Revolutionary Paul Revere by Joel Miller gets an easy 5 stars! I have given the book a “little dirt” wash rating because of a few cuss words. These words were all used in quoting what Paul Revere or his associates were reported to have said.
