"(Paul Revere) warned the British that they weren't going to be taking away our arms, by ringing those bells, and making sure as he's riding his horse through town to send those warning shots and bells that we were going to be free"Okay first I can not believe that there are historians who Are sticking up for her ... WHAT? and my kids are being taught by these people?
June 2, Boston
Second - Revere didn't warn the BRITISH he was working against them
Third - there were no BELLS, but there was a bell tower where the signaler sat and waited
Fourth - Revere didn't finish his ride, in fact he only got a little ways into it ... It was finished by some doctor, I believe (I'm sure someone can tell me his name)
Finally - must because you got the answer wrong and they are tLking about it - doesn't make it a GOTCHA QUESTION ... Why can't you just say "it was a busy day and I screwed up the answer" ... Or even better DON'T ANSWER QUESTIONS.
Look - I picked on Obama when he said we had 57 states and then corrected it in a different statement to 52 ... Even gave the benefit that maybe he was counting the two main territories ...
But the one thing he DIDN'T do was blame the questioner every time he put his foot in his mouth.
Oh and what was that question she was asked?
What had she learned on her trip to Boston
How may I ask is that a "gotcha"? She had so many options to an open ended question like that.
