Background[edit | edit source]
The monument is a remembrance of Paul Revere's "midnight ride," in which he rode the countryside on horseback to inform the people and local militia of Massachusetts that British forces were on the move to Concord. The British troops had the goal of destroying rebel weapons and ammunition while capturing Samuel Adams and John Hancock, leading to the Battles of Lexington and Concord.

- Old North Church plaque: "Built in 1723, the Old North Church is the oldest standing church in Boston. Its 191-foot-tall steeple also makes it the tallest church in Boston. On the night of April 18, 1775, Lieutenant Colonel Smith marched with 700 British soldiers to Concord on a mission to disarm the rebels. Using a plan devised by Paul Revere, Robert Newman climbed to the top of this church and lit two lanterns to alert patriots that the Redcoats were coming up the Charles River. Thus inspiring Longfellow’s famous verse "One if by land, two if by sea." The battles of Lexington and Concord that followed would start the American Revolution."
