"Paul Revere's Ride" first appeared in the December 18, 1860 edition of the "Boston Transcript," and then in the January 1861 "Atlantic Monthly." ("The Transcript" published an incomplete version, prompting Longfellow to write to James Thomas Fields, editor of the "Atlantic Monthly" saying, "In 'Paul Revere' as given in The Transcript I find six lines left out. I hope it is not so in the Atlantic. The lines follow immediately after 'The fate of a nation rode that night,' and are rather essential, I think, to the picture. Perhaps I accidentally omitted them in copying for the press." He then enclosed the omitted lines.)
