Storyboard Text

  • We have to figure out a way to signal each other about the regulars arrival without freaking everyone out.
  • what if i stay here and hang lanterns on the top of the church? one if by land, two if by sea.
  • that's a great idea. after you signal us, me and Paul will go warn everyone.
  • Alomst there. This better work out.
  • Don't worry. It'll all be fine and we will win this war no matter what.
  • Hopefully they can see the lanterns from across the river
  • As said in both the description and the poem, on April 18, 1775 Paul Revere and his friends from the Sons of Liberty were all talking about how they were going to warn the colonists about the British regulars coming to fight. They came down to a conclusion that Paul's friend is going to go to the North Church and hang lanterns. One, if by land, two, if by sea.
  • Okay, they lit two lanterns, so that means that we have to tell everyone that they are coming by sea.
  • sounds good! But we better hurry.
  • In the poem, it says that Paul himself rides across the Charles river to get to the town on the other side. This differs from the deposition because in the deposition it says that him and his friend both rode across the river together. They get to the other side and wait for Paul's friend's signal about how the British are arriving
  • Stop right there! What is your name and what are you doing out here?
  • My name is Paul Revere and me and my friends and I have just warned about 500 colonists about your arrival
  • In both articles, it says that as Paul's friend is waiting at the North Church, he spots the British coming on their boats. He runs up to the very top of the church and hangs two lanterns to signal Paul and his other friends that they are arriving by sea.
  • Fire!
  • Let's do this gentlemen!
  • In both articles it states that Paul and his friend on the other side of the river, have spotted that there has been two lanterns hung at the top of the church. This means that the British soldiers are coming by sea. Paul and his friend gather up their stuff and head out to the country to warn all of the colonists as quickly as they can before the sun rises in the morning.
  • According to the deposition, as Paul and his friend were riding through each town, Paul got captured and got surrounded by a few British men. They questioned Paul about what he was doing and he told them that he has warned about 500 people about the British arriving by sea. He exaggerated when he said this to scare the militia so they knew what they were going to be up against. This is different from the poem because in the poem it doesn't say that Paul got captured.
  • The British army that captured Paul let him go, but they took his horse and made him walk back to Lexington in the dark. The next morning came and the British fired their guns. The colonists all fought back until they finally scared off the militia into the woods and were still chasing after them. This is stated in the deposition
