Storyboard Text

  • If the British come by water show one lantern in the North Church Steeple: and if by land, one, as a signal.
  • Excellent! I must warn you both that we might get stopped before we get to Concord. I heard that Mr.Devens met ten officers along this path.
  • Hello, I am Dr.Prescott part of the Sons of Liberty. I will be heading to Concord with the both of you.
  • According to both Paul Revere's deposition and Paul Revere's Ride, it states that he called upon a friend to make the signals in the steeple. " One if by land, and two if by sea". His friend would keep an eye out for the regulars coming, resulting in the hanging of two lanterns.
  • Where are you two coming from?!
  • From Boston.
  • We are an express.
  • Whats your name!
  • Unlike in Paul revere's Ride, in the deposition it clearly states that two men rowed Paul Revere across the Charles River. Revere had kept a boat on the north side of town, "a little eastward for where the man-of-war Somerset laid". His two friends had been waiting there for him to row him across the river to meet Colonel Conant and several others.
  • As paul Revere's Ride does not state, Paul waiting in Lexington, " had been there for half an hour, Mr.Daws came; we refreshed ourselves, and set off for Concord". This happened after Paul Revere had already been through Medford and Lexington and had talked to Hancock and Adams. On their way to Concord they also meet with with a young man named Dr.Prescott, a high Son of Liberty.
  • BANG!!
  • BOOM!!!
  • As only Paul Revere's Deposition states, Revere and Mr.Daws had gotten surrounded by four regular soldiers while on their way to Concord. " The Doctor had jumped his horse over a low stone wall and got to Concord" . Revere and Daws were were forced into a pasture with swords and pistols.
  • Paul Revere's Ride also does not mention how Paul Revere and Mr.Daws escaped from the regular soldiers. Revere had told Major Mitchel, " their troops had catched aground...there would be five hundred Americans there in a short time, for i had alarmed the country all the way up". After Revere told him this lie, they took their horses and left. Revere and Daws had to walked back to Lexington in the dark.
  • Come on boys move it! I don't feel like running into 500 Americans while our boat is run aground.
  • At the end of Paul Revere's Deposition, Revere states to have ended up at Mr.Clark's after the incident with the regular solider," Came to the Rev. Mr.Clark's house, where I found Messers. Hancock and Adams". Revere had helped the two leaders to safety out of Lexington, then returned to recover a trunk with Hancock's confidential papers. When him and another man had made off with the trunk they had herd a continual roar of musketry.
