The person I have chosen to do my report on is Paul Revere who is famous for his midnight ride when he warned the patriots and minute men that the British were coming. Paul Revere was born in Boston Massachusetts on Fish street on January 1, 1735. Paul Revere died May 10, 1818 in Boston Massachusetts.

Haviland was drawing up prison designs for Rhode Island, New York, Virginia and Pittsburgh. Although Haviland’s heart and time seemed to resign in Pennsylvania because most of his projects and time seemed to be spent there. He created the prison in Harrisburg in 1841, another on in Reading in 1849 and finally before his death he was able to see the completion of the Lancaster
By late 1776, Benedict Arnold had recovered greatly from his war injury to once again take the battlefield. He played a vital role in interrupting a British invasion from Canada into New York that year. Despite his heroic personality, and great services, Arnold felt he did not receive the recognition he deserved. Which he didn’t. He resigned from the Continental Army in 1777 after Congress welcomed five junior officers over him.

Thomas Fitzsimons was born In 1741, in Ireland (exact date and place unknown) and died August 26th, 1811 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Fitzsimons and his family traveled from Ireland to Philadelphia, in the mid 1750’s. In 1763 Thomas went into the trading business, with his new brother in law, George Meade. When Parliament reacted to the 1773 Boston Tea Party with punitive measures, which the Americans called the Coercive Acts, Fitzsimons felt that if British warships could close the port of Boston, no city in America was truly safe. These concerns forced Thomas into the patriotic cause and politics.
Patrick Henry was a political leader during the American Revolution, who was educated from home. He gave a speech on March 23, 1775 at the Virginia Convention that has became a great part of history. Henry’s speech was considered to have started the American Revolution. His speech caused the House members to fight for their freedom; he showed them reasons why they shouldn’t want peace, but freedom. He took charge and gave a speech that went down in history.
In 1775, he was named commander in chief of the Continental Army in the American uprising. In his first battle, he was able to box the British out of Boston, but later that year he was almost captured when he lost New York City. During every battle he rode in the front never in the back because he wanted to show his troops that they were all in this together. Geography played an important part in the American Revolution. Americans also known as Patriots knew the land very well.
The patriot Nathan Hale serves as a well-known example of the usage of the name in the Revolutionary period (Campbell). Hale joined a Connecticut regiment when war was looming among the colonies, and served in the siege of Boston ("Nathan Hale Biography"). On September 22, 1776, he was seized by the British in New York City and hanged for espionage ("Nathan Hale Biography."). The Nobel Peace Prize recipient, Nathan Soderblom, was given the peace prize in 1930 (Nathan Soderblom - Biographical). Soderblom emphasized the obligation of subjective spirituality and objective social action, and sought to find unity in appealing for world peace; this led to him receiving the award later on in life (Nathan Soderblom - Biographical).
As a visionary leader, General Washington had developed an organization to achieve the goal of winning the war for independence. During those eight years of the American Revolution, General Washington spent countless time, thought and energy as being the organizer and administrator of the military forces than he did as a military strategist and tactician. According to “Washington The Indispensable Man” written by James Thomas Flexner states “When Washington became conscious of this British conclusion, it was to have a major effect on his strategy.” Similarly, “He agreed that it would be wise for him to take advantage of the Sabbath by slipping inconspicuously into the encampment.” Leading a whole army of 20,000 soldiers, Washington was definitely
