  • Even small children know of Paul Revere's midnight ride from Boston to Lexington to warn revolution leaders and people in general of approaching British soldiers. These two men performed the same feat, the three of them taking different routes to warn more people and to increase the odds of the message getting to Lexington without capture. We've never heard of them, because unlike Revere, Dawes and Prescott didn't have poets to tell their stories.
