Why Longfellow Lied
The Truth About Paul Revere's Midnight Ride

By: Jeff Lantos

Listen, my children, and you shall hear . . .

Paul Revere's heroic midnight ride saved the day and made him an instant celebrity, right? Wrong! At first, no one in Boston even wanted to mention it. So why did Longfellow write such a glowing account of Paul Revere, almost 100 years after the fact?

Jeff Lantos pulls apart Longfellow's famous poem "Paul Revere's Ride" to unravel how and why he twisted historical facts. This is Steve Sheinkin for the younger set, complete with an American mystery and a look at two important moments in the history of our country.
