Paul Revere & Old North Church
Paul Revere (Late December, 1734May 10, 1818) was an American silversmith and a patriot in the American Revolution. Old North Church (officially, Christ Church in the City of Boston), at 193 Salem Street, in the North End of Boston, is the location from which the famous One if by land, and two if by sea signal is said to have been sent. /5

The Essex Harmony is busy preparing 3 concerts at the same time, very ambitious and the response of the group this summer has been nothing short of phenomenal. Our next concert is Saturday, August 23, at noon at The Old North Church in Boston. This is where Paul Revere started his famous ride after seeing "2 if by sea.." from the church's steeple. We're doing an all William Billings concert. Billings was quite an eccentric and counted Paul Revere as well as Samuel Adams as friends. The music we've chosen laments the so called Boston Massacre and also contains a retrospective of his thoughts on the American Revolution and the insanities as well as the some time necessities of war. We're really excited about this and would like to see you all there!!!
there's Paul Revere's house and the Old North Church :DD & go to Salem if you can :3
Boston's Old North Church. Where Paul Revere signals one if by sea, two if by land.
One of the actual Old North Church lanterns used the night of Paul Revere's ride, Very cool.
Paul Revere, Old North Church & Longfellow's Poem A riveting look at the day when "a shot was heard round the world."
Paul Revere’s Ride: April 18, 1775, brought the most famous ride in American history. With the colonies near open rebellion, British general Thomas Gage ordered 700 troops to march from Boston to Concord that night to seize the militia’s military supplies and to arrest Patriot leaders Samuel Adams and John Hancock. The British had hoped to move in secret, but Patriot spies were everywhere, and soon silversmith Paul Revere was galloping through the night, spreading the alarm “for the country folk to be up and to arm,” as Henry Wadsworth Longfellow put it in his famous poem. There are several misconceptions about Revere’s ride, thanks in part to Longfellow’s verse. One is that Revere waited for a signal lantern to be hung in the tower of the Old North Church to know how the redcoats were moving—one if by land, two if “by sea” (across the Charles River). In fact, Revere himself directed the signal be set to warn other Patriots in the area. Another misconception is that Revere galloped along ...
Posing with Paul Revere's statue; Old North Church in the background! It's a bit chilly.

General Gage owned a pew just a few rows away from Paul Revere at Old North Church?! Seeds of the revolution were messy, people.
Looking to the Old North Church, Paul Revere remembered the code, "One if by land, two if by time machine."
of course Paul Revere was bell ringer (and bell founder) hence access to tower of Old North church…
Still basking in the glow of yesterday. We have had conversations with many people who were attended the workshop. It seems to have helped many. Today Elaine and I did the tourist thing. We took a tour bus around the city. I saw the Old North Church and Paul Revere's home and other cool places. I took the tour up in the bell tower and the crypts at the Old North Church. It was a fun day with my sweetie.
Full day of sightseeing in Boston, MA despite the heat advisory that stayed in effect throughout the morning and afternoon...ugh! :( Breakfast of Florentine cannoli from Mike's Pastry, Old North Church, Paul Revere House, lunch of Parker's sliders (on Parker rolls) w/ fresh potato chips at Parker's Bar inside the Omni Parker House Hotel (birthplace of Boston Creme Pie and the Parker House Roll), Old Granary Burial Ground (three signers of the Declaration of Independence, Paul Revere, and five victims of the Boston Massacre), and Boston Common Public Garden and Swan Boats! :)
Breannas first day in Boston consisted of 3 hrs of sleep (on the plane) and landing and going straight to Harvard. I love the fact that the tour guide will update us daily with pics so I know my baby girl is ok :) Here's Day 1: 06/12/2013 Day 1: Welcome to Boston! The Oak Harbor, Washington, group arrived at 7:30am this morning and headed to Harvard Square for breakfast, free time, a tour of the campus, and then a quick lunch before back on the bus to meet the rest of the group. The New Mexico group arrived at 2:40pm, their flight slightly delayed due to President Obama's flight having priority to leave Boston after his political visit today. Together we met our tour director, Kristin, and driver, Joe, and headed to the historic Freedom Trail where we visited the Old North Church (Christ Church), Paul Revere's house, famous boxer Tony Demarco, King's Chapel, the Old Granary Burial Ground, Boston Common, the Old State House, the Boston Massacre site, Fanueil Hall and Quincy Market. Free time at the market ...
After visiting Boston, Newport and Rhode Island in '09 something of the New England Patriots got inside of me. Something about walking down Bull St and the Old North Church and listening to hear Paul Revere shout, " The British are Coming." Something of Freedom got in my spirit. Hard to explain since being a Dolphins fan most of my life. Now the Patriots sign my excellent brother in Christ, Tim Tebow. Folks I am ready to see the glory if the Lord shine through him, as a Tailback, Slot Receiver, Tight End, dump a screen to him either an option to throw if pursuit overcomes, it could be incredulous. Go Belichik, Go Tebow.
Well I had an excellent family trip to Boston with the family. They went on a fun educational trip. They went to Bunker Hill & climbed up 294 stairs and walked back down. They went to the Old North Church (the British are coming), Paul Revere's house, The Boston Tea Party tour , Old & New State House, Boston Commons Park, Quincy Market, Harvard University & MIT, Beacon Hill, Swan Boat Ride, Baseball game @ Fenway Park, cruise of Boston Harbor, & we ate at many great restaurants. Can't wait to go back ;)
Paul Revere and the old north church.
Thanks we the people shall be heard. JJ The Battle of Lexington & Concord The first engagement between the British and the Americans happened on April 19, 1775 on the grassy fields of Massachusetts. General Thomas Gage ordered his men to take or destroy the American's supply of arms and ammunition stored in Concord. He also wanted John Hancock and Sam Adams, who were staying in Lexington, arrested. The Boston Committee leader, Dr. Joseph Warren, learned of the plans and called for William Dawes and Paul Revere. He told them to ride to Lexington, then Concord and warn the minutemen to be ready. Dawes took one road, successfully dodging British sentries by blending in with some soldiers. Revere galloped down another road and met with a friend. The man was given instructions to hang two lanterns in the steeple of the Old North Church. Revere then rowed himself to the village of Charlestown, where associates, who had seen the signal met him with a horse. Revere got to Lexington first and woke the townspeople ...
I have the Old North Church & Paul Revere's house here. Also close to the USS Constitution Loads of history here:)
Enjoy walking together as teams, starting at Boston Common, the “oldest public park” in America . See and visit great sights like Faneuil Hall, Quincy Market & the North End, home of Paul Revere & the Old North Church, where 2 lanterns signalled Paul Revere on his famous Midnight Ride! Your students will learn about famous people, places & historic events like the American Revolution, Boston Massacre, Boston Tea Party and much more! See the gold-domed Massachusetts State House atop Beacon Hill, Granary Burying Ground, where Samuel Adams, Peter Faneuil, John Hancock, Ben Franklin’s parents and Mother Goose are buried, too.
"Listen my children and you shall hear of the midnight ride of Paul Revere..." @ The Old North Church
Thought this was so cool. This is 2 pictures of the old north church in Boston. (Church where Paul Revere hung the lantern to warn the Yankees that the British was invading.) one pic is from assassin's creed 3 and the other I took when I was in Boston on vacation! I find it cool!
Paul Revere, Old North Church, and me- on the run in Boston:) @ The Old North Church
Boston will require some thought, though if you like history at all you need to see the Old North Church and Paul Revere's house.
Went on a five mile walking tour of Boston with the wife today. Stops included Old North Church, Paul Revere's house, Old South Meeting House, Boston Common, Faneuil Hall, site of the Boston Massacre, the Mather Tomb, the graves of Paul Revere, John Hancock and Samuel Adams, etc. At Old North Church, our guide remarked that Teddy Roosevelt sat in pew box number 25 in 1912. When he was offered a closer seat, TR chuckled and remarked that he wanted to "sit where pirates sat." Dear lord.
day 9 of Cape Cod trip and we went to Boston. We saw Paul Revere's Old North Church, the USS Constitution "Old Ironsides", and Lexington and Concord. Pretty good to remember your Revolutionary War history! There was Navy security at the USS Constitution and when told to remove his belt at the X-ray security, one of the men in our group "whipped" his belt off and the security men pounced on that! After seeing the simply-built and very small Mayflower yesterday, it was cool to see this large, sleekly polished ship. Thank you Luke Safford and Jackie Safford for calling today! Sandy Safford, you rock! She did it!!! Sandy RAN the entire way for the 26-mile Detroit Marathon!
Had a great day of seeing Boston: Old North Church, Paul Revere's House, USS Constitution, Bunker Hill. It is a beautiful & historical city.
Did the Freedom Trail today and saw all the historical sites; Old North Church, Paul Revere House, John Hancock/Sam Adams graves.
Bob and I just returned from a Fall Foliage trip in New England. We began with a bus tour of Boston, including Old North Church and Fanueil Hall Marketplace. Then we bussed to Lexington and Concord while hearing about Paul Revere. Next to Cape Cod, staying in Hyannis and seeing Pres. Kennedy's summer White House. A ferry to Martha"s Vineyard to view the site of a Revival of Methodists from the 1800's who built a Tabernacle and surrounded it with cute, gingerbready cottages, in concentric circles - originally tents. Very colorful. We continued to Mystic Connecticut, then Norman Rockwell's Museum. Next it was Pres. Coolidge's birthplace. Our last full day was traveling from Portland, ME, where we had a tour of the waterfront. and continued to Kennebunkport. We drove past Pres. Bush's house, but the bus isn't even allowed to hesitate. A lobster dinner was our final treat. Then it was back to Boston with a lot of hugging and goodbyes. The breakfasts were wonderful!
Hello to all!! Enjoyed a second trip back to Boston - and a tour of Boston Harbor, the State House, Old State House, Paul Revere's house, famous cemetary and Old North Church. All in the rain. Today - really enjoyed a sunny am walk with Wayne - very beautiful, scenic area. Then, on to Concord - finally, seeing a beautiful New England town with the sun and full, colorful trees. Saw home of Ralph Waldo Emerson and Walden Pond. So, cool!!Saw a display of millions of Jelly Belly beans in Reading, Mass. Called Beantown. Many jellybeans were used in making Make Way for the Ducks, flowers, horses and a giant wall of a moving Boston Red Sox player (looks like Oscar the Grouch) eating a New York Yankee. That is our update. Headed to Conn. and Rhode Island next. Returning home ? Hey - TGIF tomorrow!
I was very apprehensive. I just did not want to make this trip. But my sister took care of everything. My wife and my sister were firm, I had no choice. I needed to go. I stepped off the plane, right here at Logan Airport, less than twelve hours ago. I met up with my brother Adrian, within an hour we're walking around the North End. Of course, we went to Mike's Pastry then over to The Old North Church. We walked by the oldest wooden building still standing in Boston, Paul Revere's House. We talked. I've walked these streets hundreds of times but to me, the North End will always be Patty Sev's (the woman responsible for introducing my wife and I) old neighborhood. Adrian and I walked down by the water, I pointed out the apartment building near the Tobbin Bridge that Patty (my wife, Patty) and Linda (Patty's life-long friend) lived in. For those of you who know the story... this is the apartment maybe 24 years ago, that my brother Christian invited (if I remember correctly) Peter Allen, Phil Shappler, Eric ...
I posted pictures of our awesome trip to the East Coast last night but was too tired to write anything. We had an amazing trip--so much fun, so much history, so much beauty. I am still amazed by some of the things that I saw. I haven't even posted the pictures of the Old North Church or Paul Revere's house yet. I saw THE desk at which Louisa May Alcott wrote Little Women. Plymouth Rock for crying out loud--who even knew there was an actual rock! Most fun of all, I got to spend time with my husband--I didn't think it was possible, but we came home even closer than ever.
things I did today: 1) got up at the butt crack of dawn and went for a swim (a very short swim) with Tracy Boughton Kerr 2) went on the Duck Tour with Steve Adcook 3) walked thru The Public Gardens and Boston Commons 4) saw Paul Revere's house and Old North Church 5) ate lunch in the North End 6) went shopping at Faneuil Hall (and once again bought nothing- WTH???) ambled through Old Granary Burial Ground 7) successfully relocated to Cousin's house in Newton 8) figured out the T 9) went to Red Sox game- saw Bobby V lose his mind. sox lost, but still fun... tomorrow? goals are Freedom Trail and Mapparium/Mary Baker Eddy Museum... let's see how much I can actually do.
Paul Revere was here (the guy from that School House Rock song) @ The Old North Church
Hello from Albany, New York! FYI, don't travel through the Albany area at this time of year if you need to stop for the night. Turns out it is State baseball & softball tournament time! After about a dozen calls we finally found one of the last 4 rooms available that wasn't over $200 per night! So we departed our "Rest Stop" in Warrick, R.I., just outside of Providence, after a full 36 hours of just resting, at about 10:00 am and headed up the road to the Wicked Cool city of Boston! Walked our way up and around the Freedom Trail (marked on the streets & sidewalks with red bricks or red paint) and saw Paul Revere's house, The Old North Church, Bunker Hill, and many other Historic Sites over the couple mile long path. Ended up at the North End and toured the U.S.S. Constitution, the oldest active duty war ship in the world! It was one of the 1st navy ships built for the new country of America and was named by George Washington himself! It was later nicknamed "Old Ironsides" after it defeated 5 British ...
Lovin' me some Boston, Mass. Walked the Freedom Trail, climbed the bell tower of the Old North Church, visited Paul Revere, and listened Dr Rob talk about Paul. GREAT day. Going to visit some pilgrims tomorrow!
In Boston attending nieces grad from law school. What a great time. Saw Paul Revere's home. Old North Church. Freedom Trail Boston Red Socks game and today JFKenndy Pres library. That was so great to see Hm tomorrow.
Gelato in Little Italy and a visit to Paul Revere's House and Old North Church:)
Trying so hard to justify paying $16 to tour Fenway Park tomorrow. Fanuel Hall and lunch at Cheers, Quincy Market, Little Italy for the best cannolis, Chinatown to pick up some Pocky and get some mango sticky rice at our favorite restaurant, Harvard Square to see the street performers, Old North Church and the famous Paul Revere statue and then to find a local hole in the wall pub to celebrate Cinco de Mayo!! I think we might could squeeze a tour of Fenway! Right?!
April 1775 - 2 lanterns hung in Old North Church steeple in Boston, leading to the famous midnight ride of Paul Revere
Here's a pic of me in front of Paul Revere and across the street from the Old North Church:
Kevin True his week in Guns & Patriots... Neil W. McCabe, Editor Dear Guns & Patriots reader, Growing up in Franklin, Mass., I must say, Patriots Day was a big deal. The day marks the anniversary of the April 19, 1775 battles of Lexington and Concord. Now, standardized as a fixed feast, the holiday is celebrated in the Bay State on April's third Monday. It is a day of re-enactments of the battles, the midnight rides of Paul Revere and William Dawes and the hanging of the lantern in the Old North Church. Oh, and thousands of runners, like my sister Lynne, take on the Boston Marathon. Stepping back from all the commemorations, we need to ask: "What is the real message of Patriots Day?" To me, and my guess, to you, the lesson is that to ensure the Americans remained under control, the British sent the army to seize their guns. Seven months earlier, the British marched from Boston to present-day Somerville and seized a cache of firearms and munitions held in Nathan Tufts' powder house. That day, Sept. 1, 1774 ...
Who can forget Paul Revere`s Midnight Ride, and The Old North Church that held two bright lanterns.
