This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1898 edition. Excerpt: ... CHAPTER IX. PAUL REVERE AND ROGER SPREAD THE ALARM. Roger's heart almost stopped beating, as the conversation recorded above fell upon his ears.

"It must not be," thought the boy. "I must tell Captain Parker, -- everybody. Somebody must know where Mr. Adams and Mr. Hancock are stopping to-night, and warn them to seek a place of safety. And the militia and minute men must be on guard, too, against the troops General Gage is going to send from Boston. That surprise must not be all on one side!" With bated...
