    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. He said to his friend, "If the British march By land or sea from the town to-night, Hang a lantern aloft in the belfry arch Of the North Church tower as a signal light,-- One if by land, and two if by sea; And I on the opposite shore will be, Ready to ride and spread the alarm Through every Middlesex village and farm, For the...

    Boston police and a cadre of federal officials descended on an Ocean Avenue apartment complex in Revere last night. In addition to two Boston Police K-9 units and a bomb squad unit, a large contingent of federal agents from the FBI, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, as well as Homeland Security investigations and state police had assembled at the two buildings. It was unclear whether the search was connected to the Boston Marathon bombings. Tight-lipped agents said nothing to assembled media. Worried building residents said they were left in the dark. Marcus Worthington, 24, a building resident said no one has...

    Deep into the evening of April 18, 1775, Paul Revere gave the word to send the signal by lantern from the steeple of the North Church, then slipped quietly across the Charles River in a row boat, defying a ban on nighttime crossings. Landing in Charlestown, he mounted a horse and rode toward Lexington and then Concord, warning every household possible that the regulars were coming out. As he spread the word, other riders also mounted up and fanned out, telling the countryside that the British troops known as “the regulars” were on their way to seize liberty from the...

    The Shot heard around the World! This phrase has come to represent the beginning of many historical events - like the American Revolution (1775 - 1783). And its genesis can be traced to Ralph Waldo Emerson's Concord Hymn - "Here once the embattled farmers stood, And fired the shot heard round the world ..." Emerson words immortalized the American Minutemen resistance to the British forces back in 1775, as the British were on a mission to seize and destroy the American militia ammunition and weapons. Emerson's poem marks the Battle of Lexington and Concord (April 19, 1775), the start of...

    Want to know the truth about Paul Revere? If so, your search would provide the perfect metaphor for yet another elusive historical figure: Sarah Palin. Where should you start? Right here my friend. I have carried a voluminous biography about Paul Revere around with me for at least ten years now. Am I bragging? Yeah, a little. The book itself is tattered beyond repair. I acquired it in Massachusetts at least twenty years ago and ten years later finally got around to reading it. The author, Esther Forbes, worked with the help of her mother Harriette M. Forbes to study...

    I barely have to write the post this time. Did you hear? Sarah Palin is sooooo stupid. She believed that Paul Revere warned the British. Here, watch: (Video at Link and many links embedded in original article) Think Progress sniffs: As Mediaite’s Frances Martel notes, Palin’s version “wasn’t exactly the official History Channel rendition.” It’s hard to imagine why Revere would warn the British of anything, or why he’d do it with bells and gun shots. And as you can see, so did Frances Martel. So did Nicole Belle of the eponymous Crooks and Liars: Can we all just breathe...

    REVERE, Mass. -- A man walked into a Revere convenience store Thursday night, stripped naked, and then poured milk all over himself, according to investigators. The store owner said he's never seen anything like it. “It's very scary. Very scary. Especially, I did not witness or heard anything like this for a long time,” said Shaheedul Islam, the store owner. The store owner said he doesn't plan to file charges. Police said the intruder was having a bad reaction to his medication. He was taken to a hospital for a mental evaluation.

  • Parents in Revere(Ma)force vote on birth control and morning-after pills passed out in high school

    Earlier this year the Revere School Committee dropped a bombshell on the community. Without any warning, they voted to distribute contraceptives and the "morning after pill" to students in Revere High School. As Kathy Magno, an activist in Revere, told us, this was done without any notice to the community. There were no public hearings. No sub-committee meetings about it. It wasn't even on the agenda that day. Massachusetts Law appears to mandate that school committees run these ideas by a committee of the town's citizens before implementing them. And every town we know of (except Revere) has traditionally had...

    Mass texting among “thousands” of Boston Public Schools students fueled a high-tech hooky Tuesday, as throngs of students skipped class for sunny Revere Beach. The coordinated flash truancy blindsided cops and school officials and led to widespread chaos and crime in the beach town, authorities said. The idea to skip school on the warmest day of the year went viral for the first time thanks to social networking Web sites, online instant messengers and text messages that can send mass instructions with a mere click. By noon, hordes of middle and high school students - who either slipped out of...

    REVERE - An officer in the Revere Police Department's gang unit died last night, hours after he was shot in the head early yesterday in an outburst of violence that sent dozens of law enforcement agents throughout the city knocking on doors and questioning residents as they searched for suspects. Officer Daniel Talbot, 30, had been in grave condition much of yesterday at Massachusetts General Hospital after being shot about 1:30 in the corner of the Revere High School parking lot near the bleachers by the school's baseball diamond, according to police officials and area residents. He died shortly before...

    In Massachusetts, British troops march out of Boston on a mission to confiscate the Patriot arsenal at Concord and to capture Patriot leaders Samuel Adams and John Hancock, known to be hiding at Lexington. As the British departed, Boston Patriots Paul Revere and William Dawes set out on horseback from the city to warn Adams and Hancock and rouse the Patriot minutemen.A system of signals and word-of-mouth communication set up by the colonists was effective in forewarning American volunteer militia men of the approach of the British troops.Around 5 a.m., 700 British troops under Major John Pitcairn arrived at the...

    Paul Revere's Ride The primary goal of the Brittish regulars was to aprehend the leaders of the opposition, Sam Adams and John Hancock. There secondary goal was, to disarm the populace along the way. Here's the whole story of Paul Revere's ride: Revere confronted 2 British regulars manning a road block as he headed north across Charlestown Neck. As he turned around, the regulars gave chase and he eluded them. He then continued on to Lexington, to the home of Jonas Clarke where Sam Adams and John Hancock were staying. There, his primary mission was fulfilled when he notified Adams...
