He climbed into the steeple of the Old North Church and watched for British soldiers. If they advanced across land, Newman would display one lantern from the steeple. If the rowed across the Charled River, he would display two lanterns. Paul Revere and William Dawes saw two lights shine and set off on horseback to warn the colony
