Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for History in 1942. An exhaustively researched account of Revere's varied life as an artisan, shrewd Patriot leader, and revolutionary organizer.

This vivid account of the life and times of Paul Revere was first published in 1942 to great acclaim and a Pulitzer Prize.
