News Paper
New York Times
Longfellows Poem
"Listen my children and you shall hear of the midnight ride of Paul Revere..."
This poem is probably one of the only reasons we remember this ride. Revere and others were making rides like this often, it would have been just as easy for longfellow to write a poem about William Dawes who also made the ride.
Took some poetic liberties and changed things a little to make them sound good.
It was not intended as history it was intended to get people to fight in the civil war and convince them that every person can make a difference like Paul Revere did.
