On April 18, 1775, Paul Revere rode through Lexington and Concord, Massachusetts, shouting, The British are coming to start the American Revolution. RIGHT?

WRONG Paul Revere made it to Lexington, but before he could complete his mission, he was captured

The truth is, dozens of Patriots rode around warning people about the Redcoats' plans that night. It was actually a man named Samuel Prescott who succeeded, alerting townspeople in Lexington and then moving on to Concord. But the Revolutionary War didn't officially start for more than a year after Prescott's ride. No joke.
