  • Could you please keep quite and watch the Redcoats?When you find out how they are traveling hang one lantern if by land an d two if by sea.
  • Lets join them over the river in Charleston s I can begin this adventure alert the folks all the way up to Lexington!
  • I noticed the British Regulars and traveling by sea on boats so I hung two lanterns up.
  • According to both the poem and the deposition ,Paul Revere and others would watch and wait to see how and when the British Regulars would arrive to Lexington and Concord. One of Revere's friend's had the job to watch the Redcoats and wait until they left the men made up a way to signal to each other, one if by land, two if by sea.
  • Join us men as we ride late into the night.
  • In the poem it said once Revere got the signal he rowed himself across the river but in the deposition he said that he had men row him across. Also in the deposition it said that he met with men after he arrived on the other side of the river, he was also given a horse that he would ride to Lexington that night.
  • Hey you!!! Give me that horse right now.
  • I'll see you in Lexington Paul!
  • As said in the deposition and in the poem, Paul Revere saw two lanterns hanging from the Old North Church Steeple. By remembering the code they thought of Revere knew the Redcoat Soldiers would be traveling by sea that night. Now that Revere knows this information he also knows he has to set out by horse to alert the country folk all the way to Lexington from Boston.
  • For every shot they fire we fire too!
  • In both the poem and the deposition, Paul Revere began to alert everyone in between Charleston and Lexington. His job along with some others was to alert men, that the British regulars were on their way to Lexington by ship.
  • Only in the deposition it talks about how Paul Revere and the men who he was traveling with were captured by British Redcoats. One of the men Revere rode with escaped and continued on his way to Lexington. Revere lied to the soldiers and told them that he already alerted 500 men and they would be ready to fight in Lexington so the Redcoats let him go.
  • The deposition and the poem both talk about how the British troops had a full march and the American militia marched up with 50 men. For every shot the soldiers fired the farmers fired back. The British Regulars stood in the middle to fight while the colonist hid behind walls and fences. They only took a break to fire and then reload, the Redcoats fought the Farmers...
