What Christian Culture Looks Like - Part IX

My younger daugher is working on a school project on an historical person from the Colonial/Revolutionary period. I suggested Paul Revere who not only was a war hero but a great craftsman/artist.

Revere's father was a Huguenot and silversmith. Even if Paul Revere had never made his "famous ride", he would still be important to American history. He is one of the greatest American silversmiths and was an innovator in the foundry industry.
