Storyboard Text

  • Revere thank you for coming. But it is urgent, we have been tracking British movements we believe they are moving to Lexington to arrest Hancock and Adams, you need to get there and warn them, tonight watch for two lanterns at the north church tower you will see one if by land and two if by sea.
  • Captain sorry to wake you but the British are coming by boat ready the militia and expect them.
  • Dr. Warren one of the last remaining patriot leaders in Boston tells Paul Revere he needs to watch for a signal to deliver a warning to colonial leaders Sam Adams and John Hancock. In both the poem and deposition Revere are told by a friend when to deliver a message and receive a signal, but in the poem he is told to warn militiamen in the deposition he just needs to warn leaders so they aren't captured.
  • The British soldiers are moving this way to arrest you for treason we must leave soon.
  • No. We are needed are job is strictly political.
  • We should stay and fight!
  • The two men row Revere across a river so he can begin his ride to warn the colonial leaders . This is different from the poem because in the poem Revere rowed himself across the river this was done to make it seem like revere was a lone operator so he seemed more heroic.
  • Who are you tell me what you know or I will blow your brains out.
  • I am a courier and there are 500 American soldiers going to your ship where your troops ran aground.
  • Revere arrives in Medford and warns the captain of the militia of the movements. He then warns every house on the way to Lexington. Similar to the poem Revere warns the town and people on the way to Lexington in both.
  • The British are coming! ready the militia.
  • Revere gets to Lexington and he relays the message to the colonial leaders. Hancock wants to stay and fight but Adams disagrees because he thinks there job is political only. Completely different from poem in the poem he wasn't even warning leaders only the militias.
  • Revere is captured by British forces. He tells them that 500 American soldiers are on there way and he has warned all of the country side. One of the soldiers puts a gun to Revere's head and asks him questions about where he came from and what he had done. The militia fires on them and they take his horse and let him go he walks to Lexington.
  • After securing the leaders he heads back for personal items. While leaving he sees the skirmish between the militia and british forces. Again different from poem in the poem he didn't see the battle and there was no mention of the colonial leaders.
