Revere1's silver shop made at least 90 different kinds of products, everything from spoons to parts for a sword to a chain for a pet squirrel. His work was top notch2. In fact, you might even say he was "revered3" for it. Okay, well. That was 200 years ago. But as Frances Rivera of affiliate4 WHDH tells us, Revere's work is back in the headlines.

 

Two Masons with an accidental find. They stumbled across Masonic jewels dating back to 1797 at a lodge5 in Concord6.

 

While working on the building, we managed to locate a bag hidden amongst the insulation7. Unbeknownst to us, this bag that was all chewed up from animals or moths8 or something that had gotten trapped in a very old building, contained these items.

 

Ritchie says they were so busy with their work, the men just put the jewels aside.

 

So it did take us some time until we found out, almost a year and a half later. We were quite surprised when we actually did discover that they were as old as they were.

 

After doing some research, they say they think Paul Revere actually made the jewels.

 

As the Grand Master and as the master who chartered lodges9, he, being a silversmith, wanted to give a gift to the brothers that were going to be in that lodge and kind of put his mark on the craft at that time.

 

Each jewel represents an officer's position in the lodge. They're similar to the ones used today.

 

And he left us a legacy10 with these jewels. The care and affection he put into them inspires us to want to leave a legacy to our community, our children and our craft.

 

Finally, we're going to be off on Monday. You heard me mention the reason why earlier: it's Memorial Day. This tradition goes back nearly 150 years. It started out as a way to pay tribute to troops who died during the Civil War. And now, Memorial Day honors all of the men and women who have sacrificed their lives in service of their country.

 

CNN Student News salutes11 them. We'll be back on Tuesday for our last week of the school year. Hope everyone enjoys the long weekend. I'm Carl Azuz.
