Storyboard Text

  • Paul Revere's Ride By Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
  • Listen, my children, and you shall hear Of the midnight ride of Paul Revere, On the eighteenth of April, in Seventy-Five: Hardly a man is now alive Who remembers that famous day and year.
  • Paul Revere asks his friend to signal him if the British should come by land or sea. He also said to have the towns people prepared and armed with weapons. This is the first major event.
  • “If the British march By land or sea from the town to-night, Hang a lantern aloft in the belfry-arch Of the North-Church-tower, as a signal-light,-- One if by land, and two if by sea.
  • His friend hears "the sound of arms, and the tramp of feet." He climbed to the church tower and lit the light warning Paul Revere, which is the climax of the poem, and the second major event.
  • Paul Revere and the towns people fought the Red Coats.
  • The Resolution of the poem is that Paul Revere and the people of the town were "Chasing the red-coats down the lane," which implies the British lost the fight.
