How long was Paul Revere’s ride?

From there, he rode west to where it becomes Medford Street and then joins Massachusetts Avenue (in modern Arlington), which he then took up to Lexington. Revere’s total distance was about 12.5 miles.

Why did Paul Revere get all the credit?

Longfellow (and history) gave Revere the credit primarily because his name rhymed better than Dawes’s or Prescott’s. Revere had intended to ride to Lexington to warn John Hancock and Samuel Adams of the movements of the British regulars (which he did) and then on to Concord where the militia’s arsenal was hidden.

Did the British come by land or sea?

There were two routes that the British soldiers could take: by land through the Boston Neck and by sea across the Charles River.
