— Charleston Navy Yard —

On the night of April 18, 1775, Paul Revere set out to warn of the march of British troops on Lexington and Concord. He departed Boston by water, was rowed to Charleston, and landed near here. Walking the short distance into town, Revere borrowed a horse and then rode into the countryside.

When Revere reached Lexington, he cautioned patriot leaders Samuel Adams and John Hancock of the impending danger. Revere then rode towards Concord to ensure that patriot arms and gunpowder stored there were safely hidden.

Along his route, Revere alerted other riders who fanned out into the countryside to warn patriot militias of the British advance. On April 19, patriot militiamen clashed with British Regulars in Lexington and Concord, the first major conflicts of the American Revolution.

This wayside was made possible by: The Paul Revere Memorial Association and Friends of City Square Park.
