The Revolutionary Paul Revere gives a good and quick look at Paul Revere and the American Revolution. It takes a deep look into the life of one of the famous, but mostly forgotten Paul Revere. I am usually very cautious when reading a book on history. Mostly because history books have a tendency to get bogged down in minor details and settings or the book presents characters or events in history and I end up spending a lot of time researching them to get a complete picture. This book has neither of the two aforementioned problems. The book isn't completely centered around Mr. Revere, so you also get a wider look at the people before and after the revolution. This book shows the inside life of Paul Revere's business and his struggle to make a decent living. It also goes through the various protests against the taxes from Britain. The book gives a nice perspective to anyone who believes the modern day protests get out of hand, they are nothing compared to those that happened in the 1760's. Overall this was a very quick read, each chapter exposing more of Mr. Revere and by the end you get a complete picture of one of the great participants of our revolution.
