Introduction

“Listen my children and you shall hear

Of the midnight ride of Paul Revere,

On the eighteenth of April, in Seventy-five;

Hardly a man is now alive

Who remembers that famous day and year.” -(Henry Wadsworth Longfellow)

Paul Revere

Paul Revere was just another angry colonist, he was fed up with what was going on in his time. He owned a horse and was a messenger, this made him a target for the Boston committee, something used to communicate between colonies, to choose him for an important ride. Paul is famous for the midnight ride that he took. On this ride he was assigned to hang a lantern or 2 if the British were coming by land or across the river. The mission it was to save John Hancock and Samuel Adams. He ended up hanging 2 lanterns because the British were coming across the river, hours before this he shouted through the streets; "The regulars are coming, the regulars are coming" thus arming the militia.
