The five of you are very full from the big lunch that you all had at one of the many restaurants that line the Boston neighborhood of the North End , also known as ” Boston ‘ s Little Italy . “
You all don’t want to see the home of Paul Revere in this part of your 30 Plus Teams Tour of Boston , but that isn’t stopping you from from visiting the two other Boston landmarks that are synonymous with Paul Revere .
The Old North Church and the statue of Paul Revere sitting on his horse .
Both of these are close to public transportation and the Freedom Trail .
The Old North Church is where Paul Revere warned the colonists about the invasion during the Revolutionary War .
Forget about what you learned in school .
Paul Revere did NOT say, ” The British are coming ! ”
EVERYBODY at that time was British as there was no United States .
Instead , he said , ” The Red Coats are coming . ”
No use in trying to take a selfie at the statue of Paul Revere sitting on his horse .
This statue is not only big , it’s GINORMOUS .
You all take turns taking pictures of the five of you with the statue and as there are so many people walking around , there’s so many people who are more than happy to take a picture of the five of you together .
Next , it’s on to the Old North Church where Revere hung the two lanterns .
” I forgot , why did he hang two lanterns again ? ,” , asks one of the girls who was ALWAYS cutting classes because she found American History boring .
” The British came by sea . One if by land , two if by sea , remember ?
” , you all say in unison .
