First: Paul Revere’s fabled midnight ride might have easily come to a bloody end. In the wee hours of April 19, 1775, he rode straight into the clutches of British troops, who held a gun to his head and threatened to kill him. As dawn broke, the soldiers heard gunfire and let Revere go.
Second: In Boston at the turn of the 20th century, King Gillette joined M.I.T.-trained engineer William Emery Nickerson to mass-produce the world’s first disposable razor blade. Their American Safety Razor Company was soon renamed for Gillette. Men on the go have thanked him ever since.
