In fact, due to his confusing days as a youth, Ruth spent most of his life under the impression that he was born one year earlier than he actually was. His father owned a bar in Baltimore, where Ruth spent his childhood. For a very long time it was believed that Ruth had no mother.

Proof was discovered only recently, when an old black and white picture of a family reunion was discovered.

Essentially, his teachers made him a lifelong learner. From that point on, Paul Revere had a well disciplined, curious young mind which helped him always be ready to learn. In fact, he said that his teachers made him "love his books". Sadly, that was the last of his formal schooling. That does not mean that he ever stopped learning (Fischer 9).
