He forgot the date

He forgot "On the 18th of April '75" thats not good, its a major part of the poem. The poem is spoken ok, but you can't forget "75".

Missing a line

I had to memorize Paul Revere's Ride in 4th grade, 18 years ago. I struggled with it, particularly because I'm dyslexic, but I did manage to memorize the beginning, at least.

"Listen my children, and you shall hear
Of the midnight ride of Paul Revere
On the 18th of April in '75,
Hardly a man is still alive
Who remembers that famous day and year."
[something I don't exactly remember about a Church tower and signal lights]
"One if by land, and two if by sea,
And I on the opposite shore will be,
Ready to ride, and sound the alarm,
To every Middlesex village and farm..."

That's as much as I remember, but there's already a key piece of information missing. The date: April 18th, (17)75. That's one of the things I want the children I know to remember. I have trouble with dates and names but this poem makes it easy to remember both: Paul Revere, April 18th, 1775, midnight... and it was two (they came by sea, not land). I don't remember every town he road through, despite my 4th grade teacher's best efforts, by I do remember the key name and date at least. Not to mention that after over 200 years, this poem was still being taught in elementary schools as of when I was in 4th grade (I can't guarantee that it still is now, but 18 years ago it certainly was). So leaving out the date is a huge oversight in my mind. I guess I'll have to keep looking for a complete reading of this poem to share with the children in my life.
