Greetings and welcome to Thursday 13, the easy meme where you make a list of 13 things on Thursday.
Need an idea? Check out the list at the top of the blog. Sign up with Mr. Linky after Today's Fact so we can come around and visit. We like to visit!
On April 18, 1775, Paul Revere started his 'midnight ride' of warning, allegedly shouting, "The British are coming, the British are coming! Grab yer guns, we're gonna have ourselves a revolution." (That's the Andy Griffith version, anyway.) To be sure, Massachusetts silversmith Paul Revere did saddle up and head 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.
And here's Mr. Linky!
