WEFOUNDPaul Revere and the world he lived in


Paul Revere & the Raiders is an American rock band that saw considerable U.S. mainstream success in the second half of the 1960s and early 1970s. Among their hits were the songs " Kicks " (1966; ranked No. 400 on Rolling Stone ' s list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time ), " Hungry " (1966), "Him Or Me – What's It Gonna Be?" (1967) and the Platinum-certified classic No. 1 single " Indian Reservation " (1971). [1]

Initially based in Boise, Idaho , the Raiders began as an instrumental rock band led by organist and founder Paul Revere Dick (January 7, 1938, Harvard, Nebraska – October 4, 2014). [2] [3] The band relocated to Portland, Oregon, when Revere returned from serving in the armed forces in 1962. [4] [5] [6] [7] [8]

In 1965 , the Raiders began recording a string of garage rock classics. Under the guidance of producer Terry Melcher , the group relocated to Los Angeles and increasingly emulated the sounds of British Invasion bands such as the Beatles , the Rolling Stones , the Dave Clark Five , and the Animals , while adding an American, R&B feel. Their first major national hit, " Just Like Me " (No. 11, 1965) was one of the first rock records to feature a distinctive, double-tracked guitar solo, performed by guitarist Drake Levin. [9]

July 4 gets all the attention when it comes to early American history, but April 18 and 19 are critical dates in America’s struggle to gain independence from Great Britain. This weekend fire up the barbecue and shoot off some fireworks to celebrate the 239th anniversary of Paul Revere’s Midnight Ride and the original “Shot Hear Around the World.”

In the spring of 1775, tensions between the colonies and the British government were at a breaking point. This was doubly so in Massachusetts were the colonists’ resistance was well organized. On April 18, General Thomas Gage , the British governor of Massachusetts, ordered British troops to march to Lexington to arrest Samuel Adams and John Hancock .

Dr. Joseph Warren , a leader of the Patriot movement and a member of Boston’s Committee of Correspondence, was tipped off immediately to the British plan, and  he instructed Revere and William Dawes to leave Boston at night and ride to Lexington to warn Adams and Hancock. Along the way, Revere alerted local militia men of the impending confrontation.
