Paul Revere Comes to Medford

Medford held its annual Patriot’s Day events on Monday to mark the anniversary of the first battles of the American Revolution. The morning always includes a visit from Paul Revere, who rode through Medford on his infamous ride to warn colonists of the coming of the “regulars.”
