Paul Revere’s Ride: Brain Quest Assignment

By Jayson Knapp

Assignment instructions translate Longfellow’s poem as a story.

On April 4th 1775, Paul Revere rode to warn people that the British were coming. He did this by telling a friend,

“If the British march by land or sea from the town tonight 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, and I on the opposite shore will be ready to ride and spread the alarm through every Middle sex village and farm for the country-folk to be and to arm.”

Now in 2018 we still hear and teach of it and its poem. It is an important time in history the revolutionary war.
