The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere

Paul Revere, famous American revolution patriot, is most remembered today for his night-time ride before the battles of Lexington and Concord.

William Dawes and Revere were instructed by Dr. Joseph Warren to ride from Boston to Lexington to warn John Hancock and Samuel Adams of the movements of the British Army. Today’s  resources celebrate both the man and the events of that night.
