Just a thought — should we change our biography of Paul Revere to reflect this never-before-revealed story told by presidential hopeful Sarah Palin?
According to Sarah Palin, Paul Revere rang some bells to warn the British not to take his arms (which he would need to ring the bells, I guess). Something like that. She goes on to say some other stuff that sounds a little too philosophical and intellectual for my tastes, but since it’s not specifically about Paul Revere I think we can ignore it.
Let me know what you think. We can probably just drop one line in Paul Revere’s biography. Or maybe quote from the poem by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, that part where it says:
He rode past towns
He rode past farms
To warn the Brits
“DON’T TAKE OUR ARMS!
