    This particular version is illustrated in a way that makes a four year old and that child s mama think maybe we can tackle it now My son noticed that the British soldiers were identical What s his name And his name We talked about soldiers remaining nameless and identical and how that makes it easier not to think of them as people He then noticed that the soon to be Americans were not identical and in fact were not even soldiers I couldn t resist I told him not that it was because we al This particular version is illustrated in a way that makes a four year old and that child s mama think maybe we can tackle it now My son noticed that the British soldiers were identical What s his name And his name We talked about soldiers remaining nameless and identical and how that makes it easier not to think of them as people He then noticed that the soon to be Americans were not identical and in fact were not even soldiers I couldn t resist I told him not that it was because we always humanize our side, but that we weren t soldiers We were just a bunch of hippies, activist farmers, fighting for what we believed in The poem of course didn t really keep him too absorbed, with all those big words I explained the story first That helped I also had him clap out a hoofbeat while I read it, explaining that the poem was supposed to sound like Paul Revere riding.The illustrations of soldiers from later American wars at, through all our history, to the last made me well up There is a patriotic fool inside me and this illustrator brought it out even after I ve grown used to the poem The kid liked it and I liked it so I say it was a winning read

    The beauty of this book lies not in the poem, which many American children have heard Listen my children and you shall hear, of the midnight ride of Paul Revere The beauty for me was in this specific edition copy, illustrated by Christopher Bing Opening the hardcover book I was greeted with beautiful period artwork, showing items laying on the desk, old reading glasses, a quill pen, letter sealing wax with a stamp, and ink pot, and waitwhat is this Right inside the cover is a folded let The beauty of this book lies not in the poem, which many American children have heard Listen my children and you shall hear, of the midnight ride of Paul Revere The beauty for me was in this specific edition copy, illustrated by Christopher Bing Opening the hardcover book I was greeted with beautiful period artwork, showing items laying on the desk, old reading glasses, a quill pen, letter sealing wax with a stamp, and ink pot, and waitwhat is this Right inside the cover is a folded letter, an attachment to the book, which I carefully unfolded and read The letter is written by Thomas Gage, instructing Lieut Colonel Smith to have his troops go to Concord to destroy all artillery, ammunition, provisions, tents, small arms and all military stores whatever Turning the page, I find a historic map of Boston, Lexington and Concord, with details of the Plan for the Secret Expedition to Concord.Then the poem begins Beautiful illustrations accompany each verse, drawing the reader into the feelings of the events At the end of the book, we are given the historic story of Paul Revere s ride, and the historical inaccuracies of the poem, which was written long after the event, are explained We are then given another map, showing the routes that all of the riders of the alarm took, also showing where Paul Revere was captured, and where Dr Samuel Prescott continued on without him to warn the people of Concord and the towns beyond In closing, the back page of the book contains another inserted letter, neatly folded and sealed for us to open, giving the historic written deposition of Paul Revere, which was prepared for the Massachusetts Provincial Congress A BEAUTIFUL copy, a beautiful historic piece of reading I would highly recommend this specific copy for anyone looking for a book on The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere

    On April 18, 1775, a silversmith named Paul Revere and two other men rode from Boston to Lexington to warn American patriots that the British troops had arrived This helped prepare the American soldiers for the battles of Lexington and Concord, the first in the American Revolution About 95 years later, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow wrote a poetic tribute to Revere s actions He exercised some poetic license with historical details, so it should not be considered a historical document but rather a On April 18, 1775, a silversmith named Paul Revere and two other men rode from Boston to Lexington to warn American patriots that the British troops had arrived This helped prepare the American soldiers for the battles of Lexington and Concord, the first in the American Revolution About 95 years later, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow wrote a poetic tribute to Revere s actions He exercised some poetic license with historical details, so it should not be considered a historical document but rather a piece of great American literature.The courageous patriotism exemplified by Revere makes him an admirable hero, especially for young boys Ted Rand s illustrated version of Longfellow s work visually represents the suspense and danger of the night, allowing young readers to experience the story before they have fully grown into the poem The dramatic scenes work well with the rhythmic action of the poem, and while turning the pages one can almost hear the horse s hooves pounding the road as Revere rides on and on.The book contains a brief historical afterword which helps contextualize Revere s ride in the events of the Revolution, and inquisitive readers can also explore the online Paul Revere Heritage Project or the website of the Paul Revere House

    My mother read this to me for the first time when I was younger At the time, I believe that it was a children s illustrated copy, and might have been edited a little for a younger audience I picked up this copy as a teenager, and read it for the first time as an adult Although I love the poem itself, as a student of history in college, I was a little disappointed to find that like so many other moments in American history, Revere s famous ride was greatly exaggerated The ride was completed b My mother read this to me for the first time when I was younger At the time, I believe that it was a children s illustrated copy, and might have been edited a little for a younger audience I picked up this copy as a teenager, and read it for the first time as an adult Although I love the poem itself, as a student of history in college, I was a little disappointed to find that like so many other moments in American history, Revere s famous ride was greatly exaggerated The ride was completed by three men, and Revere didn t ride into Concord Still, it s a great childhood memory

    Beautiful artwork exquisitely so I love how the oil paintings brought this classic Longfellow poem to life through use of rich midnight hues illuminating lamplight and lantern glow One if by land, two if by sea. One of the first poems I memorized as a child..good memories.
