Today is an important day in American history. This was the best way I could think of to commemorate it.

It’s not Medford. It’s “Meffa”

"Out started six officers, seized my bridle, put their pistols to my breast, ordered me to dismount, which I did. One of them, who appeared to have the command there, and much of a gentleman, asked me where I came from; I told him. He asked what time I left . I told him, he seemed surprised, said ''Sir, may I crave your name?'' I answered ''My name is Revere.”

~Paul Revere

I keep this one on my FR home page...

Paul Revere - Arguably the first FReeper - he didn't even have dial-up but he had a horse and made historic use of it.

Today is an important day in American history.

No kidding! Today also marks the 70th anniversary of Doolittle's raid on Tokyo.

FReeper History Test

Who are the other two people that also made the ride with Paul Revere?

Why is Paul Revere the one mentioned most often in connection with this ride?

This is your FR history lesson quiz of the day. No reading through the thread to get the answers from other FReepers. However, you are allowed to research the internet but if you do so you must provide the link where you found the information. Research is an acceptable method to getting the right answer on a test.

Test being now...
