  • Paul Revere rides into history, 18 April 1775

    Apr 18, 2014

    Fort Huachuca, Az. - These words were penned on the eve of the American Civil War by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow in his poetic retelling of Paul Revere's "famous" ride. Since then, generations of Americans have considered Paul Revere an icon of Revolutionary War history. However, Paul Revere was not the only rider, (there were two others), and he did not make it all the way to his destination of Concord, but was captured and then let go (without his horse) in Lexington. Longfellow greatly exaggerated Paul Revere's role in this incident. According to the Maine Historical Society's website, the poem "rescued a minor figure of the Revolutionary War from obscurity and made him into a national hero." Why, then, did the Home of Military Intelligence memorialize a barracks after Paul Revere? Who was this man? What did he do for Intelligence?
