Patriots' Day

Happy Patriots' Day.

We're up in Lexington and Concord, watching reenactments of the first 24 hours of revolution.

I'll bore ya'll with pictures later. In meantime, enjoy a few Paul Reveres: Harold Von Schmidt, William Robinson Leigh, Greg Harlin, and N. C. Wyeth.

I've always loved that Wyeth piece.

This is an oooooldie of mine, and it's not exactly Paul Revere, but the Highwayman from the Alfred Noyes poem, but I thought it was fitting for this blog post anyway.

Sometimes, I wish the west coast had a little more US history from the earliest days. :/

Mike - I can;t seem to get the ink to work -- I'd love to see it.

bob -- did you grow up in Concord? Seems like a lovely town. Hard to believe how close to Boston it all is.

Hmm, how strange. It still works here.

At any rate, I wrote a short blog post about your blog post and put the image up there. It's definitely up now if you wanna swing on by. :)
