Paul Revere Warned the British«»During her 2011 "bus tour" across America, Palin stopped in the city of Boston, where she took in some of the local historical sites. Included in the tour was a stop at Paul Revere's shack. While there, Sarah explained to local TV cameras the significance of Revere's famous 1775 "midnight ride," undertaken just before the battles at Lexington and Concord. Unfortunately...she sort of got the entire thing backwards.
According to Palin, Revere rode on horseback and "warned, uh, the British that they weren't going to be taking away our arms, uh, by ringing those bells..." As most American school kids are probably already aware, Revere actually rode from Boston to Lexington warning the COLONISTS that the British Army was marching in their direction. (He specifically was hoping to give advance notice of the Army's movements to John hancock and Samuel Adams, who would have likely been arrested by the Redcoats upon their arrival.)
But otherwise...NAILED IT!l< << PREV 1 of 13 NEXT >>
