Paul Revere Has Died

Challenge: After reading "Paul Revere's Boston" by Beryl Epstein and "Paul Revere" by Joyce Milton, assume the role of a reporter and write an article telling of the life of Paul Revere as a family man, businessman, and community worker.

The courageous and energetic patriot, Paul Revere, died last Friday after a life of excitement. During his life, he had many jobs, truly cared for his family, and made incredible contributions to his community.

He had sixteen kids in all and two wives. He made himself wealthy by having many jobs, but he still found time for his family. He is mostly famous for the contributions he made to his community.

Paul had many jobs through his life and being a silversmith was one of them. He made cups, teapots, trays, and other silver objects in his shop. Paul also earned a living by making bells and ended up making about four hundred bells.

As a family man, Paul went to church with his family every Sunday. As he got older, he started to write poems about his life. He also helped his nieces and nephews.

Paul started contributing to his community when he was young. He became a member of the Sons of Liberty and helped deliver letters. Paul also dressed as an Indian and helped in the Boston Tea Party.

Paul was basically a busy man. He made a "Midnight Ride" and joined the Continental Army. He did not really have time for his family until the war was over.

We mourn the death of Boston citizen, Paul Revere.
