Paul Revere: American Hero A Presentation by 3 rd Graders Demonta and Javarius
We want to tell you about one of our heroes from the American Revolution.
His name was Paul Revere, and he worked as a silversmith.
In 1773, Paul Revere and some other men dressed as Mohawk Indians and dumped a lot of tea from England into Boston harbor. Americans did not want to pay taxes to England. This was the Boston Tea Party.
The Americans and the British became so mad at each other that a war began. Paul Revere rode a horse to different towns in Massachusetts to warn the Americans that the British were coming.
Paul Revere told the people that if the British were coming on land, there would be 1 light in the tower of Old North Church. If the British were coming by sea, there would be 2 lights.
Paul Revere lived a long life and died in 1818 at the age of 83. There is a statue of him by the Old North Church in Boston. Brave men like Paul Revere helped our country win its independence.
