The Court-Martial of Paul Revere

WED, JUN 10, 2015 (00:00)

Though indisputably patriotic, Paul Revere, like so many others, possessed a personality far more complex than a single defining moment would suggest. Author Michael M. Greenburg will speak about the historical record of Revere, from the Midnight Ride through his lesser-known travails and ultimate trial by court-marital following the doomed Penobscot Expedition – a troubling and often ignored chapter in the life of this beloved American icon.

This lecture is presented in collaboration with Old South Meeting House and the Paul Revere House and is sponsored by Lowell Institute.
