Storyboard Text

  • I will gladly ride for the Patriots.
  • Please you must go to Lexington at once to warn them!
  • Can you hang some lanterns in the North Church?
  • Sure, anything for a friend.
  • I saw them marching to the shore. So, i need to hang two lanterns.
  • In the Deposition, to start out Paul Revere's night he was sent for by Dr. Warren. He begged Revere to ride to Lexington and Concord. The purpose of his ride was to warn John Hancock and John Adams that there were Redcoats on their way to arrest them. Revere agreed to ride for the Patriots.
  • In both the poem and the Deposition, Revere then had to come up with a way to be signaled where the Redcoats are coming from. He and several others came up with hanging lanterns in the belfry arch of the North Church. One if by land and two if by sea. Revere went to a friend and asked him to hang the lanterns if he saw anything.
  • Paul Revere
  • What is your name? If you do not answer truthfully i will blow your brains out.
  • Not much longer after that, Reveres friend hung the lanterns in the belfry arch of the North Church. Revere caught word of this quick. Revere soon heard from Richard Devens that ten Redcoats on horses were well armed and heading toward Lexington and Concord,this conversation never happened in the poem.
  • Great. A nice long walk back to Mr Clark's house, in the dark.
  • When Revere set off at about eleven o'clock he had just passed Charlestown Neck when he saw two Redcoats under a tree,which never happened in the poem. He turned back for Charlestown Neck and went for Medford Road. One Redcoat got caught in a clay pond and Revere got away safely. He then alarmed as many houses as he could.
  • From now until the end of the night, the Deposition takes an entirely different course from the poem. Revere met up with Mr. Dawes and Dr. Prescott in Lexington and they headed for Concord. The three had a run in with six Redcoats. Dr. Prescott was the only rider to make it to Concord. Revere was captured, searched, and questioned. He was then escorted back to Lexington by the Redcoats.
  • When they got back to Lexington they heard shots being fired. The Redcoats took his horse and then let Revere go so they could go join the battle. Being left without a horse Revere then had to walk all the way back to Mr. Clark's house .
