shooting warning shots like she said and he didn't tell the British anything until he was captured and, even then, mis-directed then after they heard the gunfire.
I would be interested in how he would have reloaded his gun while riding through town. Remember these are single-shot, muzzle-loaded guns.
Let's look at Wikipedia rather than a blog.
and you didn't tell him that.Here's a source that's not a blog then:
Wikipedia is invalid for a trusted source for the simple reason people can get in and edit it.
Back in those days, I would think that a man on horseback would tend to carry a brace of pistols ''(2 0f them). First, a pistol would be better to deal with somebody on a road next to you, swinging a rifle to bear would be slower than a pistol. Also, with a brace of pistols, you would have 2 shots in case the first one didn't do the job.
scares someone like a Farakhan presidency would scare someone. If you are going to attempt analogies, please don't embarass yourself at the same time. There actually has to be some significant comparisons, and actually there's more between Obama and Farakhan then between Sarah Palin and Paris Hilton.
And I don't think either one of them has the basic skill set to run anything, nor do either of them think they need to. That's how they compare in my book. Palin is prettier IMO (I never saw what the big whoop was over Paris Hilton; she really isn't that attractive).
You put Obama and Farrakhan in the same sentence, so you did make a mental association between them.
Prescott did. Let's see. The Old North Church is where the lanterns were placed - one if by land and two if by sea. As for the British are coming - everybody was British back then. Dozens of other riders were out warning as well. She might be shooting and ringing bells but the rebels wanted to keep quiet because there were a lot that were loyal to Great Britain.
I don't know about her history knowledge but her handlers should inform her about where she is going and what to say.
You'd think the democrats would want Sarah Palin nominated since she hasn't a chance in he11 of winning the election but with the constant reminders from democrats that she's a moron she'll never even get nominated. In that vein perhaps a much more viable candidate will get nominated instead of her. Thank you for your contribution.
