Overview

On April 16, 1776, Paul Revere made his famous midnight ride from Boston to Lexington, Massachusetts. He rode to tell people in the countryside that the British troops would soon arrive. Although Paul was stopped by British soldiers, his actions on that night have made him an American legend.

Yet Paul accomplished much more than that. In Their Own Words: Paul Revere tells the exciting story of Paul Revere's life using his own writing and art. Hear Paul's story as if you were really there.
