Summary:Age Range: 9 and up (approximately, with parental supervision) April 18th is the anniversary of Paul Revere's Ride that took place in 1775. Revere rode by horseback to warn Sam Adams and John Hancock that British troops were marching to arrest them. A quintessential moment in the American Revolution, it was depicted in the poem, Paul Revere's Ride by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.
