WRONG ANSWER BELOW Revere never made it to Concord and NEVER would have yelled "the British are coming " EVERYONE was British. In 1860 Longfellow wrote a poem called The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere. The poem was to remind Americans of a shared history. This poem somehow has been allowed to be considered historical fact and put in schools history books. It is NOT history but a use of one event as a foundation for a poem. Revere for his part arrived to Concord late in the day after he was stopped by a British patrol and his horse taken from him. Dr. Prescott is the only one who got to Concord before the British.
