Predicting p. 454-455

  • If one lantern is placed there, he will know the British are going to advance on the area by land.
  • Two lanterns will indicate that the British plan to arrive by boat. 
  • When he gets the signal, he will ride through town to warn everyone. 
  • The poem describes his adventure and what happens on the ride.

  • Remember that this is told in the form of a poem.
  • The poet has chosen the words carefully to help you visualize the setting and the events.
  • Let's look for some details.

  • Try to picture everything in your mind:
  • He rows right by a large British ship that looks like a "huge black hulk."
  • The mast of the boat looks "like a prison bar."
  • Revere's friend climbs a "trembling ladder" and startles pigeons as he ascends. 
  • The wind in the churchyard is compared to a whispering guard "creeping along".

  1. Paul rows to the other side of river to wait for the signal in Old North Church tower in Boston.
  2. His friend spies on the British in the city to determine whether they will advance on the colonists that night.
  3. When he has his answer, he climbs to the top of the tower and places two lanterns.
  4. Revere sees the lanterns and begins his ride.
  5. He arrives in Medford, and then Lexington at 1:00, and then Concord at 2:00.
  6. Because of this warning, the colonists are ready when the British come.

Reason for this poem
  • This poem was written almost 100 years after the ride.
  • The poet uses complimentary words and descriptions.  That means he likes what he did.
  • At the end of the poem, he says people will remember Paul Revere.
  • This means that the poet thinks Paul Revere is a hero to our nation and helped in the revolution.

How did patriots contribute to our country's founding?
  • Patriots fought in, spied for, and gave money and supplies for the American Revolution to help the colonies end British rule.
  • Then many of them were leaders and helped form our government. 

Slide 17 - Slide

How can a story become a national treasure?
  • If a story is about an important person who helped found or fought for a country, it will become famous and will be told over and over again.
  • This story, which tells the country's history and ideals, can become just as important as an artifact of document.
