Who Was Paul Revere? by Roberta Edwards

Who Was Paul Revere? by Roberta Edwards, 105 pages

What I really like about this series the Who Was? and Who Is? books is that not only do you find out more about the person your reading about, but you learn about the period of history they went through.  This was especially true with this book.  I had always wondered how Paul Revere became famous for the phrase "The British are coming, the British are coming."  But, Paul Revere also did so much more with his life.  And, maybe the least known fact of all was that Paul Revere's ride became so famous because Henry Wadsworth Longfellow wrote a poem about it.
