This is a 16 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on the American Revolutionary War - The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere. Each of the slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
In the spring of 1775, most of the MA Patriot leaders had taken refuge in outlying communities, fearing arrest by British officials. Remaining in Boston were two physicians, Benjamin Church and Joseph Warren, the latter serving as the group’s leader in Samuel Adams’ absence. Paul Revere, a trusted messenger, also stayed in the city, tended his business interests and as unobtrusively as possible, kept an eye on the soldiers stationed in the city.
Revere became suspicious in mid-April when he noticed that British landing craft were being drawn out of the water for repairs, a clear indication that something was afoot. On the 16th he made a trip to Concord, a key community because it was the temporary home of the Provincial Congress and also a storehouse for militia guns, powder, and shot. He warned the residents there that redcoats were likely to be dispatched in the near future to seize the town’s arms supply.
The presentation covers the ride of Paul Revere as well as William Dawes and Dr. Samuel Prescott on April 18 to warn the cities of Lexington and Concord that the British were on their way to their cities just prior to the opening shots of the American Revolutionary War.
