Storyboard Text

  • Hang a lantern in the North Church Tower to tell us witch way the British are traviling.
  • You, stop your horse!
  • In Paul Revere's Deposition he says that he called upon a friend to raise the lantern. This is similar to the poem because in the poem it says,"He said to a friend, if the British march by land or sea from the tower tonight hang a lantern aloft the belfry arch." Both the poem and the Deposition say that a friend hung the lantern.
  • What are you doing here!
  • In the the poem it says that Paul Revere rode himself across the river but in the Deposition it says,"two friends rowed me across Charles River, a little eastward where the man-of-war Somerset lay." In the the poem they make Paul revere sound like a one man show but he really had lots of people helping him.
  • I alarmed the country on the way up and your boats are stuck.
  • I want you to speak the truth.
  • In the Deposition Paul runs into two British officers and barely escapes them but in the poem they don't say anything about any officers while Paul was riding.
  • lets get out of here
  • pew! pew!
  • In the Deposition Paul Revere runs into two more British officers while he was with two other people,"The doctor going foremost, he came up and we tried to get past them; but they being armed with pistols and swords, they forced us into the pasture." In the poem Paul never runs into any British officers.
  • In the Deposition it says," He demanded what time I left Boston. I told him, and added that their troops had catched aground in passing the river, and that there would be five hundred Americans there in a short time, for I had alarmed the country all the way up." In the poem it does not talk about how Paul Revere tricked the officers.
  • In the Deposition it says," We rode till we got near Lexington meeting-house, when the the militia fired a volley of guns, which appeared to alarm them very much ... [Revere then tells of his British escorts' taking his horse and departing, and his walk back to Lexington in the dark.] In the poem it does not say anything about any British officers.
