U.S. # 1059A showcases Colonial patriot Paul Revere, who used his talents as a silversmith to cast cannons and bullets. An expert craftsman, his beautiful pieces are in demand today, and many of the bells he crafted still ring in church towers.
 
Paul Revere (1735-1818)
American Patriot and Silversmith
Born in Boston, Paul Revere was a leader in the patriot group known as The Sons of Liberty, whose members participated in the Boston Tea Party. History remembers Revere for his ride from Charlestown to Lexington and then on to Concord on April 18, 1775, to warn the local militia that the British were coming. This ride is memorialized in the poem, “Paul Revere’s Ride,” by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.
 
Revere was also an outstanding silversmith (his graceful designs are still copied today), an engraver, and the first American to discover how to roll sheet copper.
 
The Liberty Series
Issued to replace the 1938 Presidential series, this patriotic set of stamps honors guardians of freedom throughout U.S. history. Eighteenth century America is represented by Revolutionary War heroes and statesmen such as Washington, Jefferson, Franklin, Hamilton, Henry, Jay, and Revere.
 
Leaders of the 19th century including Monroe, Lincoln, Lee, Harrison, and Susan B. Anthony make an appearance. The 20th century is represented by Teddy Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, and General Pershing.
 
The Liberty Series also features famous locations important to America’s democratic history, such as Bunker Hill, Independence Hall, and the Alamo.
