and I noticed something odd about Bing’s description:
“Massachusetts silversmith Paul Revere saddles up and heads off into the night to alert his fellow colonial militia members of the British force’s imminent arrival and their intent to commandeer the American’s arms as well as to arrest patriots Samuel Adams and John Hancock.”
You may have noticed it too… “their intent to commandeer the American’s arms”.
We have people who want to do that today.
Funny isn’t it? How history repeats itself…
