Q:  Who did Paul Revere ask to hang the lanterns in the Old North Church in April 1775?

A: Robert Newman and Captain John Pulling
The enduring fame of the Old North began on the evening of April 18, 1775, when the church sexton, Robert Newman, and Vestryman Capt. John Pulling, Jr. climbed the steeple and held high two lanterns as a signal from Paul Revere that the British were marching to Lexington and Concord by sea across the Charles River and not by land. This fateful event ignited the American Revolution.  https://oldnorth.com/oldnorthhistory/
