Paul Revere’s Ride

Paul Revere's RidePaul Revere’s Ride, Sarah Palin defended her account of Paul Revere and his midnight rides, insisting that his warning essentially represented a message to the British that the revolutionaries would not turn back. “I do not mess,” said the potential Republican presidential candidate this morning on Fox News Sunday. “I answered honestly and I know my American history.” Last week, while the Republican vice presidential candidate for 2008 was visiting Boston on a visit to historic sites, reporters asked Palin if he knew about Paul Revere. He left an incoherent response, which began by saying: “He who said, hey, the British were going to be takin ‘away from arms.”

Today on Fox News, Palin criticized the “gotcha” moment last week that has gone viral on the Internet.

He explained that the British army had been in Massachusetts for a while and it was not just a midnight ride. And she insisted that part of the message of Revere was the symbolism that the revolutionaries were willing to fight.

“He warned Americans that the British were coming, the British were coming, we’ve come to make sure we were protecting ourselves and underpin all our ammunition and firearms could not take,” said Palin.

The website of the Paul Revere House in Boston is an account of what happened the night of April 18, 1775. Explains that Revere was instructed to travel from Boston to Lexington to warn Samuel Adams and John Hancck “British troops were marching to arrest them.”

Paul Revere’s house said that the pilot also warned “the emerging standard” and said, “the British are coming.”

As to whether the bus tour is making you think more or less on the pursuit of the White House in 2012, Palin said she believes the answer has been receiving has been a “statement” that a change of leadership needed.

“I have not interpreted it as me,” he said. “It was about the message.”

Palin said, “still trying to figure out the lay of the land” on the 2012 Republican presidential field and if there is a place for her to run.
