Original work: after Charles Green Bush, colorized
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s poem “The Ride of Paul Revere,” published in The Atlantic Monthly in January 1861, made Revere the central figure in the story (which actually involved three riders and dozens of others who spread the word that “the British were coming.”) The image of a solitary rider alerting citizens, so effectively drawn by Charles Green Bush and others, became an enduring symbol of American patriotism.
