ONLIBERTY’S KIDS…Dr. Warren: THE BRITISH
ARE MARCHING ON LEXINGTON
AND CONCORD BY SEA. WE HAVE NO TIME
TO WASTE. LIVES ARE AT STAKE. Paul Revere:
THE REGULARS ARE COMING! THE REGULARS ARE COMING! Sarah:
THE REGULARS ARE COMING! THE REGULARS ARE COMING! Sarah: “5 APRIL, 1775.
DEAR MOTHER, “DR. FRANKLIN INSISTS
THAT HIS NEWSPAPER
IS STIRRING PATRIOTISM “IN THE BOSOM
OF EVERY COLONIST. “BUT I AM NOT SO SURE. “THERE IS NO DOUBT
THAT POLITICAL PASSIONS “RUN HIGH
HERE IN THE COLONIES. “BUT THERE ARE SO MANY PEOPLE “WITH SO MANY
DIFFERENT BACKGROUNDS, “IT SEEMS TO ME THAT
NO TWO OF THE COLONIES
SHARE THE SAME INTERESTS. “PENNSYLVANIA AND VIRGINIA
ARE AS DIFFERENT AS FRANCE
AND HOLLAND, “OR SO I AM TOLD. AS FOR ME, I AM PROUD TO REMAIN
STEADFASTLY BRITISH.” [NOISE] [GASP] [MUFFLED SCREAM] SHH! IT’S ME. YOU HEARD THE VOICES, TOO? [FRENCH ACCENT]
I THINK IT IS THIEVES. OR SOMEONE WHO DISAGREES
WITH DR. FRANKLIN’S NEWSPAPER. THEY’RE HERE TO DESTROY
THE PRINTING PRESS! COME ON! LOOK! WHO GOES THERE? DO YOU SEE ANYTHING? GOOD. LET US
RESUME OUR BUSINESS. I’LL SCARE THEM
YOU TRIP THEM UP. RUN! WE GOT THEM!
WE GOT THEM! SARAH,
RUN AND GET MOSES! OH! NO NEED
TO GET MOSES. YOU ALREADY GOT HIM. HUH? HUH? MOSES! BUT, WHY?
WHY THE SNEAKING AROUND? MAYBE HE’S A TRAITOR
AND A SPY! HE COULD HAVE FOOLED US
ALL ALONG. DON’T BE SILLY, HENRI. I’M SURE MOSES
HAS A PERFECTLY
LOGICAL EXPLANATION. OH, MY BACK OF COURSE I HAVE
A LOGICAL EXPLANATION. I’M NO TRAITOR.
I’M A MECHANIC. YOU CAN FIX A WAGON. SO? THE MECHANICS ARE
A SECRET GROUP
OF PATRIOTS CONCERNED ABOUT HOW
BRITAIN IS TREATING
THE COLONIES. I THOUGHT THAT WAS
THE SONS OF LIBERTY. THAT’S ANOTHER GROUP. ITS MEMBERSHIP
IS RESERVED FOR MEN
OF COMMERCE. WE CRAFTSMEN, HAVING
NO GROUP OF OUR OWN,
DECIDED TO FORM ONE. WE CALL OURSELVES
MECHANICS. I NEVER HEARD OF THEM. BECAUSE THESE DOINGS
ARE NOT GAMES. THERE’S GREAT DANGER
IN SIMPLY KNOWING ABOUT
THESE SECRET SOCIETIES. OHH! THANKS TO YOUR
ENTHUSIASTIC DEFENSE OF
DR. FRANKLIN’S PRINT SHOP, MY MISSION
IS IN DIRE JEOPARDY. I WAS TO DELIVER
THIS URGENT MESSAGE
TO DR. JOSEPH WARREN, A COLLEAGUE
OF SAMUEL ADAMS. WE HAVE HEARD
FROM OUR SOURCES THAT THE BRITISH ARMY
IS MOVING OUT OF BOSTON TO NEW YORK. IF THE COLONISTS
ALONG THE WAY THINK
THE BRITISH ARE ATTACKING, THEY MIGHT REACT
WITH VIOLENCE. WE DON’T WANT THAT
TO HAPPEN. AND NOW, I CAN’T
WARN DR. WARREN. I WILL TAKE THE LETTER
TO BOSTON, MOSES. I’M YOUR MAN. AND WHO SAYS
A WOMAN CANNOT BE PART
OF THIS VITAL UNDERTAKING? I’M GOING, TOO! SORRY, HENRI. I’M GOING TO NEED
YOU HERE TO HELP ME
GET AROUND. AS FOR YOU TWO– MOSES, THIS MESSAGE
MUST
BE DELIVERED. YOU SAID SO YOURSELF. THERE IS
NO OTHER ALTERNATIVE. YOU KNOW
I CAN DO IT.WECAN DO IT. TWO HAVE A BETTER CHANCE
THAN ONE. THAT IS TRUE… BUT, MOSES, SHE’S BRITISH! I MAY BE BRITISH, BUT THAT DOESN’T MEAN
I CAN’T SEE BOTH SIDES OF THE QUESTION. IT’S THE VIOLENCE
AND THE BLOODSHED
I FEAR AND HATE. IT’S SETTLED. A SHIP LEAVES
FOR BOSTON AT DAWN, BEARING EMERGENCY
SUPPLIES. I WAS TO BE ON IT. NOW YOU TWO WILL GO
IN MY STEAD. NO ARGUMENT. AS FOR TONIGHT,
GET SOME REST. DON’T SEE WHY I HAVE TO REST. I’M NOT GOING ANYWHERE. [SIGH] WHY SO QUIET? AFTER ALL THESE
LONG DAYS AND NIGHTS
AT SEA, WE’RE ALMOST
TO BOSTON HARBOR. I’M WORRIED. I HOPE I’M NOT COMMITTING
AN ACT OF TREASON. WHAT WOULD MY MOTHER THINK? WE’RE SAVING LIVES. THAT’S NOT TREASON. Ship’s captain:
STAY DOWN AND HOLD ON! THERE BE TROUBLE AHEAD! A BRITISH FRIGATE! IF THEY CATCH US
WITH CONTRABAND ABOARD– OH! THEY’RE FIRING ON US! WHOA! LOOK OUT! AAH! AAH! DON’T WORRY.
THEY’RE JUST
WARNING US OFF. THE HARBOR’S
STILL CLOSED. WE’LL LOSE THEM
BY STAYING
IN THE SHALLOW WATERS CLOSE TO THE COAST
WHERE THEY CANNOT GO. BUT WE’RE GONNA HAVE TO
PUT YOU ASHORE SEVERAL MILES
SOUTH OF BOSTON. I’M AFRAID YOU WILL
HAVE TO WALK
THE REST OF THE WAY. THANK YOU! GOOD-BYE! WE HAVE TO WALK
THROUGH THAT? UNLESS YOU CAN SPROUT
WINGS AND FLY. FEAR NOT. WE’RE ONLY 2 HOURS
FROM BOSTON. Sarah: YUCK! DON’T WORRY. THE FROGS
HERE ARE PROBABLY
TOO BIG TO FIT
INTO YOUR SHOES. THESE WRETCHED BUGS. 2 HOURS, YOU SAID? IT’S BEEN 4, AND THEY’VE BEEN
THE LONGEST HOURS OF MY LIFE! LUCKILY,
ACCORDING TO THE MAPS, THE ROAD SHOULD BE
DEAD AHEAD. SEE? THERE IT IS! OH! MY DRESS IS RUINED! IT’LL DRY SOON ENOUGH. LET’S EAT. I’M STARVING. [HORSE WHINNIES] SOMEONE’S COMING! WE’D BETTER HIDE. WHO KNOWS IF THEY’RE
FRIEND OR FOE? AAH! AAH! BRITISH REGULARS! HALT! HALT, I SAY! I SPY SOMETHING
ON THE GROUND THERE. HAVE A LOOK, SERGEANT. YES, SIR. BREAD AND CHEESE, SIR, DROPPED HERE WITHIN
THE LAST FEW MINUTES,
I’D WAGER. NOT AN ANT IN SIGHT. HAVE A LOOK AROUND,
BUT BE QUICK ABOUT IT. WE MUST JOIN THE OTHERS
IN BOSTON TONIGHT FOR TOMORROW’S JOURNEY
TO LEXINGTON
AND CONCORD. NOTHING HERE.
NOWHERE ELSE TO HIDE. PERHAPS THERE’S SOMEONE
ON THE ROAD AHEAD OF US. IF THAT BE SO,
WE’LL CATCH UP
WITH THEM SHORTLY. COME. HYAH! THAT WAS CLOSE. THAT WAS MESSY. MY CLOTHES! EAAH! SARAH, THE BRITISH
ARE NOT GOING
TO NEW YORK AT ALL. THEY’RE RIDING
TO LEXINGTON
AND CONCORD. WE HAVE TO TELL
DR. WARREN! DEAR HEAVENS! DR. WARREN? YES, YES.
WAS THERE AN ACCIDENT? NO ACCIDENT, SIR. THAT’S NOT TO SAY
WE LOOK THIS WAY
ON PURPOSE. LET ME GET
TO THE POINT, SIR. WE COME FROM PHILADELPHIA WITH AN URGENT MESSAGE
FROM THE MECHANICS. BUT EVEN
MORE IMPORTANTLY– HOLD ON. I’M NOT AWARE
OF ANY MECHANICS
WHO SEND MESSENGERS. WHAT SORT OF MECHANIC? COBBLER? WAINWRIGHT? [GASP] [GASP] I CANNOT TALK TO YOU NOW. WAIT!
WE’RE FROM THE PRINTER! AH! AND THE PRINTER’S
WIFE, HOW IS SHE? WE BOTH KNOW
HE ISN’T MARRIED, SIR. COME IN, QUICKLY. I MUST APOLOGIZE
FOR MY INTERROGATION, BUT WITH ALL THE SPIES
AROUND, ONE CAN NEVER BE
TOO CAREFUL. WELL, NOW,
YOU KNOW WHO I AM, BUT I DON’T KNOW
WHO YOU ARE, OTHER THAN YOU’VE COME
FROM DR. FRANKLIN’S
PRINT SHOP AND MOSES. THE PRINTER. RIGHT! I’M SARAH PHILLIPS, SIR. JAMES HILLER. PLEASE EXCUSE
THE WAY WE LOOK. WE’VE BEEN AT SEA
FOR ALMOST 2 WEEKS, AND THEN WALKED THROUGH
AN ENDLESS SWAMP TO GET HERE. YOU CAME ALL THE WAY
FROM PHILADELPHIA? MOSES SAID
OUR MESSAGE WAS URGENT. HOLD ON. THERE ARE SOME GENTLEMEN
HERE WHO SHOULD HEAR THIS. [GASP] [GASP] JAMES HILLER
AND SARAH PHILLIPS, PAUL REVERE
AND WILLIAM DAWES. CALL ME BILLY. PLEASED, I’M SURE. JAMES AND SARAH HAVE
BROUGHT US URGENT NEWS
FROM PHILADELPHIA. WHAT WE’VE SEEN
OUTSIDE THE CITY IS MUCH
MORE PRESSING, SIR. BOSTON HARBOR REMAINS
BLOCKADED, AND THE BRITISH
ARE ON THE MOVE, BUT THEY ARE MARCHING
ON LEXINGTON
AND CONCORD, NOT NEW YORK. THAT CONFIRMS
EVERYTHING WE KNOW. TONIGHT’S THE NIGHT. YES. THE RUMORS MOSES HEARD ABOUT THE BRITISH
MARCHING ON NEW YORK ARE COMPLETELY FALSE. THE RUMORS WE HEARD
FROM THE BRITISH GROOM ARE COMPLETELY CORRECT. THE BRITISH ARE MARCHING
ON LEXINGTON AND CONCORD,
BY SEA, WHICH MEANS THEY’LL
BE GOING AFTER SAMUEL ADAMS
AND JOHN HANCOCK, NOT TO MENTION
THE COLONISTS’ STORES
OF GUNS AND AMMUNITION. NOT IF WE GET THERE FIRST. WE HAVE NO TIME TO WASTE! LIVES ARE AT STAKE! WARN EVERY VOLUNTEER
FROM HERE TO CONCORD. WAKE THEM UP.
KNOCK ON EVERY DOOR
IF NEED BE. I’LL GO BY LAND
OUT THROUGH BOSTON NECK. RIGHT. AFTER
I SET THE SIGNAL
AT NORTH CHURCH TO LET EVERYONE KNOW
THE BRITISH ARE
COMING BY SEA, I’LL CROSS THE RIVER
AND ARRANGE FOR A HORSE
IN CHARLESTOWN. IT WILL BE DANGEROUS, BUT IF ONE MEETS
WITH TROUBLE, PERHAPS THE OTHER
WILL GET THROUGH. WE’VE GOT TO BE
PART OF THIS! BUT, JAMES, I’M VERGING
ON TREACHERY ALREADY. YOU’RE LOOKING AT IT
ALL WRONG. THIS IS HISTORY
IN THE MAKING. DR. FRANKLIN
NEEDS US TO OBSERVE. OTHERWISE, WHO WILL EVER KNOW
WHAT ACTUALLY HAPPENED
THIS NIGHT? YOU’RE RIGHT.
THE TRUTH MUST BE TOLD. WE’D LIKE TO COME WITH YOU. YES, TO DESCRIBE
THESE EVENTS FOR DR. FRANKLIN’S
NEWSPAPER. THE WHOLE WORLD
MUST LEARN OF SUCH
MOMENTOUS HAPPENINGS. HMM. THEY WOULD
MAKE GOOD COVER. WE’LL HELP
RAISE THE ALARM. I AM WELL-RAISED,
MR. DAWES, BUT I CAN BE LOUD. SHE CAN.
BREAKS GLASS ALL THE TIME. ALL RIGHT, THEN.
COME ALONG. HOLD ON! I DON’T KNOW
IF DR. FRANKLIN WOULD CONSENT TO MY PUTTING YOU TWO
IN DANGER. SIR, DR. FRANKLIN’S
RIGHT-HAND MAN, MOSES,
SENT US HERE. AND DR. FRANKLIN
IS BEHIND US 100%. PHILADELPHIA TO BOSTON
IN JUST 13 DAYS? I STILL FIND THAT
NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE. WITH ALL DUE RESPECT, SIR,
NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE
AND IMPOSSIBLE ARE TWO DISTINCTLY
DIFFERENT THINGS. AND WE HAVE TO COVER
THIS STORY AND LET PEOPLE KNOW
WHAT HAPPENS. VERY GOOD, THEN.
GODSPEED. AND WRITE WELL. TELL THE WORLD
OF OUR GALLANT BOYS AND THEIR MIDNIGHT RIDE
TO STOP THE BLOODSHED. YE-HAA! [REVERE WHISTLES
TO HORSE] SORRY TO DISTURB YOU,
MR. NEWMAN, BUT THE BRITISH REGULARS
ARE DEFINITELY ON THE MOVE, AND THEY ARE PREPARING
TO CROSS THE CHARLES RIVER. 2 LANTERNS, THEN? YES, JUST AS WE AGREED. ONE IF BY LAND,
TWO IF BY SEA. THE WHOLE CITY WILL BE ABLE
TO SEE THEM FROM THE BELFRY. [HORSE WHINNIES] DO YOU HEAR THAT? SOUNDS LIKE SOLDIERS. WE DON’T HAVE MUCH TIME. James: PETTICOATS
TO MUFFLE THE OARS. GREAT IDEA. TOO BAD
ABOUT THE FULL MOON, THOUGH. I FEEL LIKE THERE’S
A LANTERN ON US. SHH! THESOMERSET.PAUL! OVER HERE! DEACON LARKIN,
RELIABLE AS ALWAYS. I SAW THE LANTERNS. [NEIGH] MY FATHER’S HORSE,
AS PROMISED. I HOPE SHE’S FAST. WON MANY A RACE FOR ME. WATCH OUT
FOR THE RED-BELLIES! THE ROADS ARE CRAWLING
WITH THEM! LOOK! TO THE NORTH! YES! IT’S THE REGULARS! WHOA! GOOD EYES, GIRL. I BELIEVE THE BRITISH
ARE CROSSING TO CAMBRIDGE. WE’VE NO TIME TO LOSE! WHOA! WHAT’S THE MATTER? RIDERS COMING. BRITISH PATROL… PERFECT STOPPING PLACE
FOR THEM. HI-YAH! DASH IT ALL! AFTER THEM! Dawes: THE REGULARS
ARE ON THE MARCH! Sarah:
THE REGULARS ARE COMING! THE REGULARS ARE COMING! HEY! THE REGULARS
ARE COMING! WAKE UP! WAKE UP! THE REGULARS
ARE COMING! THE REGULARS ARE COMING! THE REGULARS ARE COMING! James: THE BRITISH
ARE COMING! Sarah: WAKE UP!
THE REGULARS ARE COMING! WAKE UP!
THE BRITISH ARE COMING! WAKE UP! [REVERE WHISTLES] JOHN HANCOCK! SAM ADAMS! BESTIR YOURSELVES! WELCOME TO CLARKE HOUSE,
JAMES, KNOWN FOR ITS PEACE
AND QUIET. SOUND THE ALARM! HALT! PEOPLE
ARE SLEEPING HERE! KEEP THE NOISE DOWN! NOISE? YOU’LL HAVE
NOISE ENOUGH BEFORE LONG. THE REGULARS ARE COMING. HELP ME WAKE THE HOUSE. Hancock: COMING!
DON’T BREAK IT DOWN! WHAT’S GOING ON, PAUL? JOHN, SAM, THE REGULARS
ARE ON THE MOVE, AND THEY MEAN TO CAPTURE
YOU TWO AND ALL THE MUNITIONS
THEY CAN FIND. WE’LL GATHER UP OUR THINGS
AND REPAIR TO BUCKMAN TAVERN TO PLAN OUR ESCAPE. JAMES, HOW WAS
YOUR RIDE? INCREDIBLE! JAMES, TAKE CARE
OF THE HORSES. I’LL HELP. MR. REVERE’S COURAGE
IS AMAZING. WHEN I TELL THE STORY,
HE’LL BE FAMOUS. BUT HIS IS ONLY HALF
THE STORY. MR. DAWES HAS BEEN DOING
THE SAME THING, JUST AS AMAZINGLY. I CAN ONLY WRITE
WHAT I WITNESS, AND I’VE BEEN
WITH PAUL REVERE. I’VE WITNESSED
GREAT EVENTS, TOO. FROM NOW ON,
I’LL BE A JOURNALIST. I CAN’T LET PEOPLE
GET ALL THEIR NEWS
FROM JAMES. MR. DAWES AND I ARE RIDING ON
TO CONCORD. WE’LL UNDERSTAND
IF YOU DON’T WANT TO COME. AND MISS
A HUGE STORY? OF COURSE, SARAH
MAY WANT TO STAY. NOT A CHANCE. MY HORSE IS TIRED.
SHE’S HAD A LONG NIGHT. WE ALL HAVE. THERE’S A RIDER COMING. REVERE? DAWES? DR. PRESCOTT,
THE FREEDOM FIGHTER? CALL ME SAMUEL. I HEARD ABOUT YOUR RIDE,
PAUL REVERE, AND I THOUGHT
I’D JOIN YOU. [HORSE WHINNIES] YOU! HOLD THERE! LET’S SPLIT UP! SEE YOU IN CONCORD! MY HORSE
WILL NEVER MAKE IT. IT WILL NOW. GO. THEY WON’T DO
ANYTHING TO ME. I’M A BRITISH SUBJECT. YOU’RE ALSO
A BRAVE GIRL. HE-YAH! IF YOU’RE STAYING,
I’M STAYING. GO, MR. REVERE,
AND GOOD LUCK. YOU’RE IN MY CHARGE. THE OTHERS WILL GET
THE MESSAGE THROUGH. YOU, WHAT’S YOUR NAME? REVERE. PAUL REVERE. BOSTON’S FAMOUS
EXPRESS RIDER. WHAT BRINGS YOU OUT TONIGHT? I SEE YOU’VE BEEN
RIDING HARD. ALERTING THE COUNTRYSIDE
OF OUR REGIMENTS
HEADED THIS WAY? I WON’T DENY IT. DISMOUNT, SIR. SERGEANT, TAKE HIS HORSE. MR. REVERE, IF YOU ATTEMPT
TO RUN OR WE ARE INSULTED, YOU’LL PAY THE PRICE. Revere: YOU MAY
DO AS YOU PLEASE. WHAT ARE YOU TWO
DOING OUT HERE? SHOULDN’T YOU BE IN BED, LEAVING SUCH TREASONOUS
ACTIVITIES TO YOUR ELDERS? I’VE COMMITTED
NO TREASON! I’M A LOYAL
BRITISH SUBJECT FROM A RESPECTABLE
ENGLISH FAMILY. OH, BUT OF COURSE. PARDON ME FOR NOT RECOGNIZING
YOU IMMEDIATELY,
YOUR LADYSHIP. [CHUCKLING] IT WAS THE, UH, MUDDY FACE
AND DIRTY HAIR THAT
HAD ME FOOLED. SERGEANT,
ROUND UP THESE URCHINS. WE’LL NEED SOMEONE
TO CLEAN UP AFTER THE HORSES. [MUSKETS FIRE] LISTEN!
A SKIRMISH AHEAD. SERGEANT, PREPARE
THE MEN TO ENGAGE. WHAT ABOUT
THE PRISONERS, SIR? THEY’RE TRAITORS. WE SHALL DELIVER THEM
TO THE CIVIL AUTHORITIES. BUT THEY’LL
SLOW US DOWN, SIR. YOU’RE RIGHT, SERGEANT. RELEASE THEM,
BUT KEEP THE HORSE. IT’S FRESHER THAN OURS. YES, SIR. YOU’RE FREE. [GASP] I STRONGLY SUGGEST
YOU GO HOME. DON’T LET OUR PATROLS
CATCH YOU ON THESE ROADS AGAIN. COMPANY, FORWARD! COME. LET US GO. WHERE ARE WE GOING? BACK TO LEXINGTON. WE HAVE TO HELP HANCOCK
AND ADAMS ESCAPE. WHAT A STORY
THIS IS GOING TO BE! YES, AND I PLAN
TO HELP WRITE IT! Revere:
THANKS FOR YOUR HELP. YOU’LL BE SAFE HERE
AT THE INN. THANKS FOR LETTING US
COME ALONG. ALL THE WORLD WILL KNOW
OF YOUR BRAVE ACTS WHEN MY NEWSPAPER ARTICLE
IS PUBLISHED. [YAWN] GOT TO GET
THESE NOTES DOWN WHILE TONIGHT’S EVENTS
ARE FRESH IN MY MIND. I’LL HAVE A LITTLE SOMETHING
FOR YOU TO INCLUDE
WITH YOUR DISPATCH. WHAT IS THAT,
YOUR AUTOBIOGRAPHY? NO. JUST THE HALF
OF THE STORY YOU LEFT OUT. THE TRUTH MUST BE TOLD. Ben Franklin: “HOW I WISH
FOR A DAY “WHEN WORDS WILL FLY
ACROSS THE SEA “AT THE SPEED OF LIGHTNING, “AND NOT WAIT THESE LONG,
INTERMINABLE MONTHS AT SEA. “I WORRY OVERMUCH
ABOUT THE COLONIES, I HOPE. “BUT I FEAR THAT
THIS TENSE SITUATION “IS HEADED FOR CONFRONTATION,
NOT COMPROMISE. “I FEAR FOR MY FRIENDS
AND MY ALLIES. “I FEAR FOR MOSES, “WITHOUT WHOM MY LIFE
AT HOME COULD NOT GO ON. “I FEAR FOR JAMES, SARAH,
AND HENRI, “THE YOUNG ONES
IN MY CHARGE. “THIS IS NO TIME
TO BE BOLD AND BRASH, “BUT TRY TO TELL THAT
TO YOUTHFUL SOULS “CAUGHT UP IN THE PASSION
OF THE TIMES. “IN THE END, NO MAN OR WOMAN
CAN REMAIN NEUTRAL. “THERE IS A DAY
OF RECKONING COMING, AND NOTHING I CAN DO
WILL PREVENT IT.” N’ AT LIFE THROUGH MY OWN EYES ♪ EARCHIN’ FOR A HERO TO IDOLIZE ♪ ♪ FEELING THE PAIN
