On the eighteenth of April, in Seventy-five, Paul Revere made his famous ride, memorialized by Longfellow’s poem, which took certain liberties with the truth. Perhaps Revere rhymed more readily than Dawes or Prescott, who also were involved with the warning about the British troop movements. At any rate, here you will find the real story of Paul Revere’s ride and the actions of William Dawes and Dr. Samuel Prescott, who were also with him that night. Examine interesting maps, one of which is interactive, Revere’s own words about what happened that night, and, of course, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s unforgettable poem. There is also a link to a biography of Paul Revere, which explores more than that few hours of that fateful night before the shot that was heard around the world.
