REVOLUTIONARY TALES – BOSTON , MASSACHUSETTS – ALL THINGS PAUL REVERE .

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 .
