Paul Revere was born January 1, 1735 in Boston, Massachusetts. His original name was Apollos, but he wanted a more English sounding name when he arrived to America. He was a serious artisian. In 1757 he married Sarah Orne and had eight children. In 1773, his wife died and he remarried to Rachel Walker. With her, he had eight more children. Revere supported his family by becoming an engraver and dentist. By the 1760's he was a master goldsmith. Even though he was doing well in his business, he felt his life would soon be affected if the British weren't addressed. After joining the Freemasons, he began to spy on the British and report what they did. What he is most known for, happened on April 18, 1775 at ten at night, when Revere rode to Lexington to warn John Hancock and Samuel Adams of the approaching British.
