"Listen, my children, and you shall hear, Of the midnight ride of Paul Revere, On the eighteenth of April, in Seventy-five ...He said to his friend, 'If the British march By land or sea from the town to-night, Hang a lantern aloft in the belfry arch Of the North Church tower as a signal light--One, if by land, and two, if by sea And I on the opposite shore will be, Ready to ride and spread the alarm, Through every Middlesex village and farm, For the country folk to be up and to arm.'" --From "Paul Revere's Ride" by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, 1807-1882. The midnight ride of Boston silversmith Paul Revere warning colonists that British troops were advancing on Lexington and Concord the night of April 18, 1775, is regarded as one of the most important moments in early American history. In honor of the 230th anniversary of this historic event, Breyer Animal Creations has created this beautiful Traditional Series replica of Paul Revere and his borrowed mount Brown Beauty. Our 8" Paul Revere figure is appropriately dressed in common attire for a man of Revere's stature: a white shirt, green vest, a dark blue greatcoat, breeches, boots, and a tri-corner hat. Brown Beauty's tack is also typical of the Revolutionary War era and includes an English-style saddle, a saddle pad and bridle. A Certificate of Authenticity accompanies this handsome collectible that is sure to inspire the Patriot in all of us. Horse lover or history lover, one look at Paul Revere's Midnight Ride and the clatter of hoof beats on cobblestones rings in your ears! Comes in beautiful keepsake Gift Box. Age 8+
