Sounding the alarm

Paul Revere

Paul Revere hoofed it out of the North End this morning to warn the colonists the Redcoats were coming.

Afterwards, Minutemen stood at attention in front of the Paul Revere statue and Old North Church as Taps were played and a wreath laid at a memorial for fallen patriots on the Prado.


After the ceremonies - which included a moment of silence for Mayor Tom Menino - the Minutemen repaired to Durty Nelly's for some grog or some equally fortified beverage.
