By this time, Revere had become the de facto leader of the town’s artisan class and thus was instrumental in the planning and execution of the Tea Party in Boston harbor in December 1773. For the next two years, he served as an express rider for the Committee of Safety in Boston, an anti-British organization. Australia Map Tourist Attractions In its service, he made more than a dozen rides to New York, Philadelphia, and towns north of Boston, delivering news of the Suffolk Resolves, the Boston Port bill, and other developments to pockets of Whig resistance.
