Who Warned the Colonists of the British Advance toward Lexington and Concord?

Answer

Samuel Prescott was the only person who was able to make it from Lexington to Concord. He did not go in order to warn the colonists about the British. The riders originally left Lexington after Paul Revere spread word about the British in order to get to weapons that were stored in Concord.
