Here's a fun and timely offering for homeschoolers, classroom students, and history buffs alike over at Homeschool Freebie of the Day:
As the Erskines describe them: "Paul Revere, famous American revolution patriot, is most remembered today for his night-time ride sounding the alert before the battles of Lexington and Concord. His famous “Midnight ride” took place on the night of April 18, 1775 – exactly 237 years ago TODAY! William Dawes and Revere were instructed by Dr. Joseph Warren to ride from Boston to Lexington to warn John Hancock and Samuel Adams of the movements of the British Army. Today’s resource, courtesy of their sister site HomeschoolRadioShows.com, celebrates both the man and the events of that night. Listen My Children is a great half hour audio story about Revere’s life and influence, including the events of that fateful night, as originally dramatized on the radio program “Cavalcade of America”, in December, 1952.
