Welcome to The Object of History – a podcast where we unravel the stories behind historical objects held at the Massachusetts Historical Society. Join us as we take a close look at a letter written by Paul Revere, the revolutionary patriot famous for his "midnight ride." We’ll learn how Revere authored his account of that pivotal night at the request of MHS founder, Jeremy Belknap. We’ll explore how this letter was lost for decades before its rediscovery, and how it ultimately became a precious artifact in the MHS collections.
