Paul Revere

While he was skilled as a smith, he's most known for his ride to warn the people that the British were coming. He rode to specifically warn Sam Adams and John Hancock, but he also alerted any other allies on the way. He couldn’t yell “The British are coming!” because there were still many British loyalists. After warning them, the british apprehended him and took his horse. Though, Revere's ride never truly gained fame until the poem "Midnight Ride" was published years later, though it embellished several parts.
