To be all “correcty” here - Paul Revere (and 2 others) rode through with the call of “The Regulars are out”.
Then Everyone in the Colonies were British, but divided in their Loyalties.
Should they obey General Gage’s commands and surrender to the Chains of Slavery or should they remain on their Feet...?
Hard choices then and now -
