Adam explains the true story of Paul Revere's Midnight Ride, in which he and other individuals alerted the colonial militia to the approach of British forces before the battles of Lexington and Concord.
This clip describes some lesser-known facts about the American Revolutionary War. It mentions that there were actually two Boston Tea Parties and that Paul Revere did not ride alone. William Dawes, Samuel Prescott, and 40 additional men ended up joining Revere to warn fellow patriots that British troops were approaching Lexington. Also, African Americans, Native Americans, women, and pirates known as privateers supported the colonists' effort to gain independence from Great Britain.
In a scene that reanimates Paul Revere's midnight ride, Moses Cooper rides through the night to alert the colonists that British forces are approaching Concord. He tells them to summon the militia, and they do so after contemplating their situation.
