Booker T. Washington once said, “Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome.” In 1776, by David McCullough, this quote truly resonates the fact that it is the little things that count, as not necessarily the big picture. Although there are many pitfalls the Americans go through during the course of this story, the outcome of the war would be a positive success to the Americans. As a result, good leadership is a very important factor in accomplishing a goal. Also, encouragement is a big help when it comes to boosting a soldier’s morale. Furthermore, endurance is vital to an army

Thomas Lincoln was a carpenter and farmer. Both of Abraham's parents were members of a Baptist congregation which had separated from another church due to opposition to slavery.

Although Revere was not one of the founding members of the Sons of Liberty, he was still actively involved. He did not partake in the violent protests executed by the Sons of Liberty but used his skills as a silversmith to produce engravings, among other political artifacts. For example, the members of this group “wore special insignia that might have been made by Paul Revere - a silver medal with a Liberty Tree and the words ‘Sons of Liberty’ engraved on its face.” He partook in small ways that still showed his support of the group. Later, when the British parliament repealed the tax, Revere was credited with helping to organize a public celebration.
Paul Revere’s early life was very interesting. According to “Reveres Early Life”, Paul Revere was born on January 1, 1735 in Boston’s North End. Paul Revere was the main source of money since his father died. Revere also volunteered to fight in the French lake war in 1756. Revere became a second lieutenant for the colonial army in Georgia and New York. Revere was a gold/silversmith like his father.

In 1774, the Liberty Boys, spied on British men and met regularly to give information. Four years after his midnight ride, Paul Revere served as commander of land artillery in the catastrophic Penobscot Expedition of 1779. Paul Revere is usually most remembered for his horsemanship. He is also known for his contributions from his hammer and chisel. His ability to appeal to the colonial people through works of his copper engravings demonstrated the power of propaganda. After the War, Revere increased his business to open an iron foundry at the North End of Boston making utilitarian cast iron products that were useful and widely purchased by the local people. He also opened a copper mill which made bells for churches and rolled copper for the hulls of wooden ships. All of this demonstrated that Paul Revere was a man of great talents, and was therefore indispensable to Boston’s fame in resisting the authority of the British Parliament and King George III. Paul Revere did not gain immediate fame for his April 1775 Midnight Ride. In fact, it wasn't until Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's 1861 poem, which greatly abolished Revere's act, that he became the folk hero we think of

First of, “Paul Revere’s ride in 1860,during the turbulent times when the United States was on the brink of civil war.” Some of the people didn’t know how he was or anything like that he might have been a normal person. “How accurate was longfellow poem?” The author was Franklin Johnson, “Paul Revere and the American Revolution” by: Ethel Ames, and “Paul Revere’s Ride” written By: Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.
