On our way to New York after having spent 2 nights in Boston. It is the last day of our tour and we have met some very nice people. Boston was very nice (like all the other places we have visited). Has a real Sydney feel - big harbour, river, high rises mixed with some beautiful buildings. I loved walking near the harbour. The Boston Common and Public Garden were beautiful as well. Lots of oaks and weeping willows, lagoons mixed with opportunities to explore historic spots, plaques etc. They have a large lake in the Garden with swan boats that have been operating there since the 1800s. Looked very peaceful until you saw how fast the poor operator had to pedal. It was very interesting visiting some of the sites associated with the War of Independence - the ride of Paul Revere, the church where the lanterns were hung etc. Even though we have enjoyed the tour, it will be good to have a week to ourselves and a few sleep ins.
History Fact- Sybil Ludington (April 5, 1761 – February 26, 1839) was a heroine of the American Revolutionary War who is famous for her night ride on April 26, 1777 to alert American colonial forces to the approach of the British. Her action was similar to that allegedly performed by Paul Revere,[1][2][3][4][5] though she rode more than twice the distance of Revere and was only 16 years old at the time of her action. She was an aunt of Harrison Ludington, the Governor of Wisconsin. Ride On April 27, 1777, British troops raided Danbury, Connecticut, which housed numerous Continental Army supplies.[6] A messenger was dispatched to alert Col. Ludington.[7] Ludington's ride started at 9:00 P.M. and ended around dawn.[6] She rode 40 miles, through Carmel, New York on to Mahopac, thence to Kent Cliffs, from there to Farmers Mills and back home. She used a stick to prod her horse and knock on doors.[8] She managed to defend herself against a highwayman with a long stick. When, soaked with rain and exhausted, s ...
Sybil Ludington - The Female Paul Revere, is the story of Sybil Ludington, a 16 year old as who courageously rode 40 miles to save New York during the Revolutionary War.
During the entire period between the early part of the sixteenth century to 1787, thousands of Huguenots left their homes in France for other countries because of recurring waves of persecution. As Esther Forbes, wrote in Paul Revere and the World He Lived In (Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1942): "France had opened her own veins and spilt her best blood when she drained herself of her Huguenots, and everywhere, in every country that would receive them, this amazing strain acted as a yeast." Huguenot settlers immigrated to the American colonies directly from France and indirectly from the Protestant countries of Europe, including the Netherlands, England, Germany, and Switzerland. Although the Huguenots settled along almost the entire eastern coast of North America, they showed a preference for what are now the states of Massachusetts, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and South Carolina. Just as France suffered a notable loss though the emigration of these intelligent, capable people, so the American ...
June 21, 1966…The Rolling Stones filed a $4.9 million lawsuit against 14 New York City hotels for banning them, claiming that the ban was "injurious to the group's reputation and discriminatory in violation of New York's Civil Rights law." June 21, 1966…At the Marquee Club in London, guitarist Jimmy Page made his live stage debut as a member of the Yardbirds. June 21, 1966…At EMI's Abbey Road Studios in London, the Beatles recorded the John Lennon composition, "She Said She Said," the final track of the "Revolver" sessions. Reportedly, the song was based on a bizarre conversation that Lennon had with Peter Fonda while John and George Harrison were tripping on LSD. It took nine hours to rehearse and record the entire song, complete with overdubs. Paul Mccartney does not appear on the finished recording; the bass was played by George.

TODAY PAUL REVERE WOULD BE YELLING "THE GLOBALIST ARE COMING" "THE GLOBALIST ARE COMING".In 1774 and the Spring of 1775 Paul Revere was employed by the Boston Committee of Correspondence and the Massachusetts Committee of Safety as an express rider to carry news, messages, and copies of resolutions as far away as New York and Philadelphia. On the evening of April 18, 1775, Paul Revere was sent for by Dr. Joseph Warren and instructed to ride to Lexington, Massachusetts, to warn Samuel Adams and John Hancock that British troops were marching to arrest them. After being rowed across the Charles River to Charlestown by two associates, Paul Revere borrowed a horse from his friend Deacon John Larkin. While in Charlestown, he verified that the local "Sons of Liberty" committee had seen his pre-arranged signals. (Two lanterns had been hung briefly in the bell-tower of Christ Church in Boston, indicating that troops would row "by sea" across the Charles River to Cambridge, rather than marching "by land" out Boston ...
Part 4-More Trouble By 1774, the colonists were not only resisting but actively planning for the inevitable. Because the crown banned public meetings and militias the colonists set up "Committees of Correspondence". Paul Revere became the chief messenger and director of communications between the various groups spread throughout the colonies. He often made long dangerous rides carrying dispatches from the leaders in Boston to New York, Philadelphia and the other colonies. Banning the militias only heightened their activities. What was for years a rag tag group of farmers and shop keepers were now openly arming and training out in the towns and villages. Colonies had also formed provisional governments and holding meetings in open defiance of the law. John Hancock was the president of Massachusetts colonial congress and worked side by side with his chief mentor and aide Sam Adams. General Gage of course knew all of this. Most of the people in the colonies were not for a revolution. Many did not support the ...
Rew's News, Today's Highlights in History, February 5 , On this date: In 1826, Millard Fillmore, who later becomes the 13th president of the United States, marries Abigail Powers, a New York native and a preacher's daughter. In 1953 - The Walt Disney’s film "Peter Pan" opened at the Roxy Theatre in New York City. In 1962 - The 50th episode of "The Andy Griffith Show" aired. Tim Gore watched it on the Zenith. In 1966 - Paul Revere & the Raiders performed "Kicks" on "American Bandstand." They just seem to get harder to find. John Routledge and Kerry Wells sang that going to lunch at Vestavia Elementary from Mrs. Gibson's class. Today's birthdays include: Hank Aaron, Roger Staubach , Cory Wells (Three Dog Night), and Bobby Brown, but the best birthdays for today belong to Connie Gaston Hamil, Paul Downing, and the awesome Maya Rew! Happy birthday!
to limit the size of Magazines is nothing new but with still the same intent. Paul Revere was captured before completing his mission when the British marched towards the armory in Lexington and Concord to seize the Massachusetts militia's gunpowder magazine. The war underway, the Americans captured Fort Ticonderoga in upstate New York. At the June 17 Battle of Bunker Hill, the militia held its ground against the British regulars and inflicted heavy casualties, until they ran out of gunpowder and were finally driven back. (Had Gage not confiscated the gunpowder from the Charleston Magazine the previous September, the Battle of Bunker Hill probably would have resulted in an outright defeat of the British.)
He has work in the Congressional Library, Washington, D.C., the Appellate Court House, New York, and the State House, Boston, where are his three large panels, “James Otis Delivering his Speech against the Writs of Assistance,” “Paul Revere's Ride” and the “Boston Tea Party.” He executed a panel for the American Pavilion at the Paris Exhibition, 1900, and in 1906 he completed a series of ten stained glass windows for the Unitarian Memorial Church at Fairhaven, Mass.. Reid's “The Martyrdom of St. Paul” is located at the southwestern end of the nave of the Church of St. Paul the Apostle in New York City. He died in Clifton Springs, New York.
Just finished reading Malcolm Gladwell's revealing book Tipping Point. Excellent book. Changed the way I see so many things. The main premise is that little things make a huge impact: Paul Revere being the perfect person for his famous ride, the resurgence of Hush Puppy shoes stemming from a select group of East Side youth wearing them, the diminishing New York crime rate beginning through controlling the graffiti on subways and catching fare cheaters. Makes me realize that one of the key points of success is to find the right fit--person, message, context to bring about my mission. A quote: "This is the first lesson of the Tipping Point. Starting epidemics [movement] requires concentrating resources on a few key areas."
Hello from Albany, New York! FYI, don't travel through the Albany area at this time of year if you need to stop for the night. Turns out it is State baseball & softball tournament time! After about a dozen calls we finally found one of the last 4 rooms available that wasn't over $200 per night! So we departed our "Rest Stop" in Warrick, R.I., just outside of Providence, after a full 36 hours of just resting, at about 10:00 am and headed up the road to the Wicked Cool city of Boston! Walked our way up and around the Freedom Trail (marked on the streets & sidewalks with red bricks or red paint) and saw Paul Revere's house, The Old North Church, Bunker Hill, and many other historic sites over the couple mile long path. Ended up at the North End and toured the U.S.S. Constitution, the oldest active duty war ship in the world! It was one of the 1st navy ships built for the new country of America and was named by George Washington himself! It was later nicknamed "Old Ironsides" after it defeated 5 British ...
You gave me the license to ill while I was fighting for my right to party. You assisted in my skills to pay the bills while working for Professor Booty. While I was writing an open letter to New York about the new style, you stopped the car thief from killing Jimmy James. I'll miss the times where I passed you the mic and you would say "hey ladies" to get their bodies moving. Don't let anyone sabotage your intergalactic mission to shake your booty with Paul Revere and drink brass monkey.
Music Beastie Boys' Adam Yauch, known as MCA, dead at 47 Brooklyn-born rapper was diagnosed with cancer in 2009 and was unable to attend April induction into the hall of fame Adam Yauch speaks at the Apple Soho store in 2008 Photograph: Bryan Bedder/Getty Images Brian Braiker in New York guardian.co.uk, Fri 4 May 2012 19.11 BST Rapper Adam Yauch, a third of the trailblazing hip hop act the Beastie Boys, has died aged 47. Yauch, who performed as MCA, had been in treatment for cancer since 2009 after discovering a tumor in his parotid gland. Initially dismissed as a trio of jokers who scored a fluke novelty hit with Fight for Your Right (To Party) on their 1986 debut Licensed to Ill, the Beastie Boys would grow into one of the most ambitious and influential acts of the 1990s. The densely layered followup to their jokey and spare debut was 1989's Paul's Boutique, a postmodern hip hop masterpiece that was largely ignored at its release. Today the Dust Brothers-produced record is considered a seminal album tha ...
RIP Adam Yauch aka MCA of the Beastie Boys. So sad to lose such a trend setter so young. Three Jewish boys from New York ruled my world in jr high... Paul Revere was life changing!
It's Animal *** Day, International Juggler's Day, Golf Day, Columnists Day, Wear Your Pajamas to Work Day, and Pet Owners' Independence Day. Who doesn't like animal *** Enjoy a box and revel in fond memories. Buy three boxes and celebrate International Juggler's Day. Or, you can just try to do too many things at once. Golf Day was created as a day for lobbying Congress about all things golf. Really. Today we honor newspaper and magazine columnists--not bloggers--people who aren't afraid to put their advice and opinions into print. I wonder what Lingerie Baristas wear on Wear Your Pajamas to Work Day? If you're in software development you probably dress this way a lot, too. Finally, it's Pet Owners' Independence Day so ignore your cat. On this day in history in 1775 Paul Revere and William Dawes thought the British were coming, in 1783 fighting in the American Revolution ended, in 1838 the Wilkes Expedition sailed, in 1868 the SPCA formed, in 1869 the first intercontinental cricket match was hel ...
