Listen my children and you shall hear...

Of the midnight ride of Paul Revere,
On the eighteenth of April, in Seventy-five;
Hardly a man is now alive
Who remembers that famous day and year.

- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
It's been 235 years since Paul Revere took his famous ride through Massachusetts to warn the colonists that the British were coming! Two lanterns were lit in the Old North Church in Boston, to warn that the British were coming by sea. And he rode through the night to Concord to warn the men there to be ready!

You can read the whole poem here, and if you never have, you should. And while it is not historically accurate it is a really good read. Enjoy! :)

Have an exciting day! :)


  1. I feel all red white and blue now. Thanks

  2. What a great blog post! I visited Boston a few years ago and was totally enthralled with the history, and the way it clashed with the present (in a good way). Great mini treasury too!

  3. Thanks so much for featuring my Drum set on your Blog, Jennie! How exciting!

  4. Thanks everybody! :)

    Felt on the Fly - I've always wanted to go to Boston, but haven't quite gotten there yet. Hopefully we'll get to go when the kids are a little older. :)

    Suzanne-Poplar Street Prims - You're very welcome! I'm glad you liked the feature! :)
