The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere

Hear the true story of Paul Revere’s famous ride and learn about the events that immediately precipitated the Revolutionary War. Paul Revere did not ride alone – many individuals played crucial roles in the events of April 19th, 1775.

This history presentation begins with alarm riders warning “the Regulars are out!” You’ll hear about the dramatic stand on Lexington Green and the “shots heard ’round the world” at Concord’s North Bridge. The tale concludes with harrowing life-or-death choices made along the 17 mile “battle road.”

This exciting tale will be woven throughout the day’s marksmanship events.

Additional Event Information

This event is open to the public and is appropriate for all ages that can safely handle a rifle.

All participants must have eye and ear protection. The club provides loaner shooting mats and GI slings and has a number of loaner rifles (S&W M&P 15-22’s) available. If you need a loaner rifle, be sure to respond in the affirmative to that question for each ticket holder who needs a loaner.

All rifles must be cased unless on the firing line.
