Lanterns and belfries and night in the air, of horses and riders oh what a pair, to warn a great signer of trouble ahead, the regulars are coming the message said.
It was that great night so long ago, that our founders stood up to the advancing foe. We stood our ground on that calamitous day, oh what a price, what a price we did pay.
But liberty the outcome, the outcome we say, I’m so thankful, so thankful for this special day!
April 18, 2017, Neil Stagner, (not Longfellow mind you but the best I have today!) Regarding the Ride of Paul Revere, and the battle of Lexington and Concord.
The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere
Well, of course, today is the day we remember Paul Revere’s great ride as outlined in the poem by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow “Paul Revere’s Ride”. The poem was written in the mid-1800’s when our nation was in internal struggles about here identity, and what we stand for. Much like today.
I understand that Longfellow wanted the people of the US to remember the price that was paid for our liberty. To remember our founders, and to honor their sacrifices that were made on our behalf.
Much like today, I too want to remind my fellow countrymen of our struggled past, and our promising future if we hold on to this Republic so dear. I have two links included
I have two links included, one of Longfellow’s Poem and two of this day in history from the History channel. Good reads, but if you think that you know the truth about “The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere”, you might want to read the History Channels piece. For Paul Revere was not alone, there were two others… Find out who they were, and pass the truth on to your children, for “Posterity Sake”. Please

Hint #1: Posterity! You will never know, how much it cost the present Generation, to preserve your Freedom! I hope you will make a good Use of it. If you do not, I shall repent in Heaven, that I ever took half the Pains to preserve it.
Hint #2: There! His Majesty can now read my name without glasses. And he can double the reward on my head!
