6) As a result of the lanterns being shown, who were the riders that rode to Lexington?

So immediately following Paul Revere's midnight ride, this battle happened the next day. It was "the shot heard around the world."
Robert Newman, the church caretaker, was responsible for signaling Paul Revere and the other messengers. It was Robert Newman’s responsibility to send a back-up signal to warn the patriots in Charlestown, just in case Revere himself was captured on his ride before he could spread the alarm that the British were on the move.

Once Robert got information regarding the movement of British troops, he would notify the riders, using one lantern if the British were moving on land, two lanterns if they were using the sea.
