Paul Revere's Ride

Paul revere's ride affected the revolution by, with his warning, the minutemen were ready to right when the British actually got to them. Also without his and the other rider's warning Hancock and Adams would have been capture along with the arms that were stored at Lexington.

Significance

The British Are NOT Coming!Paul Revere did not say "The British are coming." This would have caused major confusion among the colonist. He most likely said "The regulars are coming."

PreperationRevere's ride was not a sudden as many think in the weeks leading up to the ride the Sons of Liberty had already planned ways to quickly alert the partiots of the British coming. There idea was to place signals at the top of the bell-tower of the Christ Church in Boston. These could be seen across the Charles River and would give advanced notice about the route the British. "One by land, Two by sea."

Fun Facts-Post-war Revere was court-martialed and dismissed from the militia after charges of insubordination and cowardice.-Made the engraving of the Boston Massacre
