Paul Revere

 His final resting place in Granary Burying Ground.
 The Old North Church that hung the beacon that started his ride that began the Revolution.
His house in the North End of Boston.

From a discussion with a colleague last night, we remembered the importance of Paul Revere being a "connector" from the Malcolm Gladwell book Tipping Point It wasn’t just that he went on his famous ride, and rallied the troops – it was that he was the kind of person who could galvanize others, who knew EVERYBODY, and everybody knew him …which is why it worked.
