1On April 18, 1775, Paul Revere answered a tap on his door and met the messenger who only said, " Dr. Warren," which prompted Revere to go to the home of his good friend Dr. Warren.
2Then many people in the countryside could prepare for an attack. Later, in his journal, Revere wrote, "After that, I alarmed almost every house until I got to Lexington."
3Now, Revere knew that the coming events would be no less important because many people suspected that the British leader, General Gage, was planning to invade further into the area toward Lexington to capture Sam Adams and John Hancock, seizing property along the way.
4Two years earlier, Revere and Warren had dressed at Mohawks and helped other patriots dump British tea into Boston Harbor.
5While others slept in the town of Boston, Revere was told to flash his lantern twice in the North Church tower if they should prepare for a British invasion by water and only once if it would be by land.
