Storyboard Text

  • Are you ready to save our country, sir?
  • As ready as I'll ever be, the regulars won't ever mess with us again.
  • I cannot thank you enough for graciously allowing me to use your horse.
  • Anything for a man who would risk his life to save our country.
  • Open up! I am here to warn of the British arrival. Hurry so we chat and warn the others!
  • In the deposition, Paul Revere speaks about meeting up with Dr. Warren to begin warning the colonists. This is where Revere learns that Warren had previously sent out a young doctor to warn them as well. However, the poem speaks nothing of this.
  • How will we ever be able to make sure everyone takes us seriously? We need all the help we can get to beat the British.
  • The people will surely believe me. I can travel along, if you'd like.
  • At this point, Paul had asked a friend if he wanted to help out with the scandal. He was to hang up lanterns, marking the British arrival. "One if by land, two if by sea". Paul then borrowed a horse so that he could spread the news quickly. The poem states that Paul had his own horse, which is not the truth.
  • My people are coming!!
  • Tell us the truth!
  • And nothing but the truth!!
  • During his ride, Paul Revere stopped to awake the militia. The poem only says that he chanted the news by houses, which contradicts his story. Paul also stopped, chatted, and refreshed himself. Which the poem also forgot to mention, as well as the fact that this is where he met the young man, Dr. Prescott. The poem does not even speak about the presence of Prescott.

  • In the midst of chatting, Paul Revere had a conversation with Dr. Prescott. Prescott informs him about his place in the Sons of Liberty. The doctor agreed to go with them, as the civilians may have an easier time trusting him. They were also warned about the probability of getting caught at Concord. The poet left this whole part out of the poem.
  • Despite the poem saying that Paul Revere made it to Concord with no problems, that is not the truth. He made it halfway before him and others were stopped by British officers. Paul, however, tricked them into thinking the British were not coming, and that 500 men were waiting to fight the British. Paul may have lied, but he got away, as well as the others. After hearing a few bullets, the British men got scared and let him go. Although Paul got away, he did not get his friend's horse back.
  • After being let go by the British officers, Paul made his way to Concord. Although he wasn't there for the entire fight, he did manage to witness part of it. The poem said that he saw the whole thing, which is a stressed truth. The poem contains numerous lies, many of which are covered by truths. Or are simply uths that he stretched to build up Paul Revere's image
