Paul Revere's Midnight Ride

In all our years of studying history, I've never seen my boys more excited about anything than the story of Paul Revere and his midnight ride.

I'm not sure what it was, exactly, that captured their attention so fully, but they decided spontaneously to enact a play based on the poem, "The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere." With the help from older sisters, the play had sound effects, effective lighting, and even lanterns in the church tower.

We were impressed to our core.
