Local History Book Group: ‘Paul Revere’s Ride’ by David Hackett Fischer

April 02, 2018 | Will Adamczyk

Join me on Wednesday, April 25th  at 7:00 for a discussion of ‘Paul Revere’s Ride‘ by David Hackett Fischer.

The Local History Book Group meets quarterly at the Library. Copies of the book will be available at the Main Desk on the first floor, or you can place a hold here.

“In Paul Revere’s Ride, David Hackett Fischer fashions an exciting narrative that offers deep insight into the outbreak of revolution and the emergence of the American republic. Beginning in the years before the eruption of war, Fischer illuminates the figure of Paul Revere, a man far more complex than the simple artisan and messenger of tradition. Revere ranged widely through the complex world of Boston’s revolutionary movement–from organizing local mechanics to mingling with the likes of John Hancock and Samuel Adams. When the fateful night arrived, more than sixty men and women joined him on his task of alarm–an operation Revere himself helped to organize and set in motion.”
