Drawing on the American Antiquarian Society’s unparalleled collection of prints and books, the exhibition “Beyond Midnight: Paul Revere,” will transform viewers’ understanding of the iconic colonial patriot. Examples of rare prints will be shown alongside elegant silver tea services and everyday objects such as thimbles and period newspapers to reveal new facets behind this versatile artisan best known for his midnight ride. This will be the first time all five 1770 printings of the Boston Massacre will be shown.
