Long-Distance Interactive for K-12 Educators on Paul Revere

Wednesday, March 4, 2020 - 4:00pm to 5:00pm

Revere, Public Relations, and the Creation of Legends
This workshop, part of a two-part series of long-distance K-12 professional development workshops based on the exhibition Beyond Midnight: Paul Revere, will focus on Revere’s involvement in memory-making through his famous Bloody Massacre print and the creation of the legend around his ride.

It will examine how Revere both participated in a public relations campaign—not unlike those waged today—to help create the narrative around the Boston Massacre and became the center of one in the aftermath of the Battles of Lexington and Concord. Primary sources and objects that will be discussed include broadsides, pamphlets, Revere’s deposition about the battles, the lantern that was hung in Old North Church, and artistic depictions of the events.
