Prescott and Dawes. Revere started out , but was arrested by a British patrol before he got to Lexington. The only reason we know about Revere is the Longfellow poem written in 1861 used his name. Longfellow did not mean to make his poem history, but that is the way it has been used. Longfellow was trying to make a point about patriots on the eve of the civil war.

What did Sybil Ludington do that was so important?

Sybil Ludington rode 25 miles on her horse star to tell people that the British were burning down Danbury. she rode twice the length of paul reveere yet she is way more famous then him. Edited: Sybil rode 40 miles on her horse named Star. She was sixteen and Paul Revere was 40 and only rode 10 miles. Paul Revere is more famous than Sybil. Sybil Ludington was important to the Revolutionary War because she had warned a colony that the Regulars were coming (The British), she had asked her dad to do that instead of him asking her.

Lydia Darragh was a Quaker, and her beliefs forbid her to get involved with the war. This was an advantage for the British because they could have meetings at her house. She would send the rest of her family to bed and then hide in the closet which was in the meeting room. She heard them plan an attack on General George Washington so she told one of his troops about the British plan to attack. The planned British victory was gone.

Who said the redcoats are coming the redcoats are coming?

It's been attributed to Paul Revere, but the actual words were supposedly "The Regulars are coming out" - then as people took liberty of the recounting of the story, became "the British are coming" or "The Redcoats are coming". Both "Regulars" and "Redcoats" were names for the British Army troops. He wouldn't have said "The British are coming" as many believe, because many fighting with the British Army during the Revolution where British themselves.
