Storyboard Text

  • Hang the lanterns in the North Church one if by land, two if by water.
  • Captain, wake up, the commoners are marching through!!!
  • Paul Revere told only one freind to hang the lanterns in the North Church as a signal to show the British troops were marching through, as depicted in the poem, unlike in the deposition were he told at least three freinds to do so.
  • The British have started a march towards Lexington and Concord!
  • For what though?
  • In the poem, Longfellow stated that Paul Revere rowed himself across the Charles River, but the depostion tells us two of his freinds rowed him, not one.
  • What are you doing, and who are you two?
  • Paul Revere rode through the night, warning the townspeople without stoping according to Longfellow, but the depsition states that Paul actually woke up the captain of the minute men specifically, not everyone in the towns and villages.
  • The war has started, nothing else would cause these gunshots!
  • Riding a horse shouting through the night was Paul Revere's actions throughout nearly the whole poem The Midnight Ride, showing there was no rest the whole night. The deposition of the staes otherwise, that paul stoped for a thirty minute break to refresh with others.
  • Redcoats eventually caught Revere and one other with him, confiscating their horses and questioning what exactly they were doing, as portrayed by Paul's depositin, differing from the poem where his heroic actions were never seized, or delayed by the oppsing forscesthat night.
  • An immense noise of guns being fired filled Paul Revere's ears, as the start of a war that would change the world started. Both Longfellow's poem and the deposition state at the end of each of the writings that the Revolutionary War had begun.
