you have a very important job tonight ride into Lexington and tell Adams and Hancock to leave immediately
One if by land, and two if by sea
On a Tuesday of April 18th 1775 Dr.Warren also known as Joseph Warren told Paul that he would be sent off to Lexington where Messrs, Hancock, and Adams were. Paul was to tell them to leave the area because the British Soldiers were coming to arrest them for treason. These events are similar in both stories because they both talked about what Paul needed to do.
I just saw ten British officers down the road armed and everything! Be careful!
Paul finally arrived to Mr. Dawes house, they discussed what was going on that night etc the signal. They made up land a signal "One if by land, and two if by sea" meaning one lanthorn if they are by land and two if they are by sea. Then later on, Warren called up a friend and had him set the signals. This information is in both texts so it is similar.
GET BACK HERE!!!!!!
Later on that night, Paul went to the north part of the town where he had kept a boat. Paul had his two friends row him across Charles River. This is different because in the poem the author said Paul rowed himself across the river.
Paul finally got into town, and he met the Colonel Conant and several others. He told them all that was happening and they went to get him a horse, he got the horse from Deacon Larkon. While they were getting the horse ready a man named Richard Devens from the Committee of Safety told him that there were 10 British officers armed going up the road. This is also different because in the poem the author made it seem like Paul did everything by himself and that it was his horse being used.
Paul got on his horse and got passed Charlestwon Neck he saw two men and discovered they were British officers. They tried to take him and get ahead of him. He turned his horse around quickly and headed for Medford Road he went through Medford, over the bridge and up to Mentomy. he alarmed almost every home, till he got to Lexington and he told Hancock, Adams, and Messers whats going on. Some events that happen in this description are the same and some different are in the poem.
They refreshed themselves and went on to Concord when they got caught in a sticky situation four british officers had them trapped. But the doctor jumped the wall and headed to Concord to warn some people and later they heard the first shots of the American Revolutionary War. Some of this information is the same as the poem and some of it is different.
