#3. Paul Revere
by Barbara J. Feldman
Paul Revere Printable (** for premium members only)
Paul Revere (1735 – 1818) was an American patriot best known for riding on a borrowed horse from Boston to Lexington on April 18, 1775 to warn the colonists that British troops were approaching. The next day, when the British arrived in Lexington, the colonial minutemen were waiting for them.
American Revolution: Midnight Ride of Paul Revere
Paul Revere was a member of the secret revolutionary intelligence group known as the “Mechanics” or “Liberty Boys.” Visit AmericanRevolution.com to learn more about their activities, to see a map of the “Midnight Ride of Paul Revere,” and to read the Henry Wadsworth Longfellow poem of the same title. “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.”
AmericanRevolution.org: Revere Speaks
“I, Paul Revere, of Boston, in the colony of the Massachusetts Bay in New England; of lawful age, do testify and say; that I was sent for by Dr. Joseph Warren, of said Boston, on the evening of the 18th of April, about 10 o’clock …” Read about the events of April 18, 1775 as written by Revere himself. The colonial language can be a bit difficult to follow, but as you read this, consider how Revere’s account of that night differs from the Longfellow poem.
Archiving Early America: Paul Revere, Messenger of the Revolution
“The Regulars are coming! The Regulars are coming!” Be sure to turn your speakers on before arriving at this animated slide show describing Revere’s famous ride. “Paul Revere had an illustrious career as an engraver, silversmith, watchmaker and soldier, but above all we will always remember him as a patriot and folk hero in the name of freedom.” Although there are no links to the rest of the Archiving Early America site from this page, you’ll find more Paul Revere resources by visiting www.EarlyAmerica.com, and searching for “Paul Revere.”
