On April 16, 1775 (Easter Sunday), Paul Revere took a ride out of Boston to Lexington to tell John Hancock and Sam Adams (in hiding there) that the British would soon be sending troops to the town to arrest them and to seize military stores. Revere advised that minutemen should be moved in. When he got back to Boston, he set up a plan so lantern signals would alert the countryside to the Red Coats’ routeóby land or by sea. The colonists were ready.
