Episode 168

Joseph Warren Revere was the grandson of Paul Revere. He led a military life of adventure, discipline, and gallantry. He traveled the globe, raised the American flag over California, helped found the U.S. Naval Academy, and led soldiers as a colonel and general during the American Civil War. During that war, in 1862, while convalescing in Washington, DC, he made a stunning decision to become Catholic. He was baptized in the Cathedral of the Assumption in Baltimore — the Baltimore Basilica — and was a devout Catholic the rest of his days. After his military career ended he lived most of his days at his home in New Jersey. He traveled more, and painted a painting for his parish. Joseph Warren Revere died in 1880 due to injuries and illness suffered during the Civil War.
