242 years ago

Listen, my children, and you shall hear
Of the midnight ride of Paul Revere,
On the eighteenth of April, in Seventy-Five:
Hardly a man is now alive 
Who remembers that famous day and year.
                                                      --- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
I look out my window and see Independence Hall.  Seems apprpriate to salute Paul Revere today.

I heard that it was the ballad of Paul Revere as his name rhymed better. But I forget where I heard that.
