Paul Revere’s Ride Paul Revere is best known for a famous ride that he took to warn people in Lexington and Concord, about the British's plan to attack. There are two pieces of text to analyze. A poem called “Paul Revere’s Ride,” written by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. And also a letter written by Paul Revere to his friend Dr. Jeremy Belknap. The two pieces of text will also be compared so we can see the similarities and differences.
The belfry tower over the Old North Church, \ As it rose above the graves on the hill.” This contains rhymes, and it also contains the descriptions of how he is preparing, which builds suspense by informing readers that the British will be coming soon and that Revere will have to ride, and fast. It is showing how the British will cause even more gravestones to appear, another case of foreshadowing here, which will cause readers to be caught up in the suspense of ‘will he make it to lexington?’ As well as making the reader question the character’s risk of getting caught after or during the ride, due to how it shows gravestones as a sign of
Paul Revere was an American silversmith, engraver, industrialist, and a Patriot in the American Revolution. Paul Revere is also best known for alerting the colonial militia to the approach of British forces before the battle of lexington and Concord. Author Henry Wadsworth Longfellow wrote Paul Revere's Ride to inspire people to go and fight, preserve America, and freedom. In the poem, Longfellow talks about Paul Revere and how he alerted the Lexington minutemen. As time passed, Paul Revere would ride his horse through Medford, Lexington, and Concord to warn the patriots.
A Start To A Battle “If the two lanterns hang in the North church steeple that will give a signal to the Americans that the British are coming by sea not land.” This famous quote by Paul Revere describes his idea to secretly signal that the British were coming. This is one example of how he played an important role in the American Revolutionary War. Before the War, Paul Revere’s role in the Sons of Liberty was to be a leader and help defend the Americans.
The midnight ride is one of the most iconic moments in history. Paul Revere is most known for his contribution to the American Revolution. He helped the Revolution and may have saved Lexington and Concord.

In writing A Voyage Long and Strange, Tony Horwitz’s goal is clear, to educate others on early America and debunk ignorant myths. Horwitz’s reason for wanting to achieve this goal is because of his own ignorance that he sees while at Plymouth Rock. “Expensively educated at a private school and university- a history major, no less!-I’d matriculated to middle age with a third grader’s grasp of early America.” Horwitz is disappointed in his own lack of knowledge of his home country, especially with his background history and decides not only to research America’s true beginnings, but to also follow the path of those who originally yearned to discover America.
In the article, “Revere’s Famous Ride,” it states, “Although Paul Revere is the name usually associated with the famous ride to warn the approach of the British troops, he was not alone.” The text also states, “Revere worked for the American Committees of Correspondence as one of it’s many messengers.” These two quotes prove that Paul Revere was working with several other people and organizations to plan and perform this midnight ride. Him, along with people such as William Dawes and Samuel Prescott took part in the journey. These two names aren’t thought of as much by the average person.
On October 25, 1781, the author states, “A mob surrounded it, broke the shutters and the glass of the windows and were coming in, non forlorn women here.” here shows how the mob reacted to Cornwallis’s surrender of Yorktown, which is the last and most important battle of the war. The author further on states, “Warm Whigs of one side and Hartleys of the other, rendered it impossible for us to escape that way.” shows how the Patriots on one side were attacking the Loyalists and were treated even worse than the people inside the house. When the mob left their house, the author describes the scene, “In short it was the most alarming scene I ever remember.
Lack goes a notch higher in helping the readers not only understand the history but also key problems that characterized it but were not necessarily discussed in most historical analyses. For example, Lack argues that most historians have, for a long time, been unable to understand the deeply rooted chaotic character of the war for Texan Independence. Furthermore, he remarks that with its military insubordination, internal disagreements, class, racial and ethnic tension make the Texas war for independence very unique. So in-depth is Lack’s analysis and perspectives that he ultimately implies that it is likely that their Texans owed their successes in fighting for independence more to promising circumstances rather than their own effort, commitment and organization (Lack
For this project, I selected Paul Revere ’s Ride by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. The reason that I selected this poem was that when we lived in Massachusetts we lived in Concord. Concord was the end point of Paul Revere’s Ride. Given this, every year on April 18th, the town put on the reenactment of the battle of Lexington and Concord, at this reenactment every year they recited Longfellow’s poem.
