Paul Revere’s Ride

Even in the 1800s, Paul Revere’s ride was memorialized and honored.  See this page image from PAPERS READ BEFORE THE OHIO COMMANDRY OF THE MILITARY ORDER OF THE LOYAL LEGION OF THE UNITED STATES 1883-1886 VOLUME 1, 1888, found in the Accessible Archives database:

A voice in the darkness, a knock at the door, And a word that shall echo forever more! For borne on the night wind of the past, Through all our history to the last, In the hour of darkness, and peril, and need, The people will waken, and listen to hear The hurrying hoof-beats of that steed, And the midnight message of Paul Revere.
