The thing here is that Paul Revere wasn't charging through towns ringing bells, or firing waring shots or anything. He had set up the lamp signals in case he was intercepted on his way into Charlestown where he would start to quietly warn his compatriots in the "Sons of Liberty" group on his way to tell both Samuel Adams and John Hancock that the "Regular/Redcoat" troops were coming to arrest them. He wasn't taken prisoner until after his mission was completed, his two co-waring riders escaped the capture, and he too was set loose without a horse in short order. How S. Palin can have any idea of what he said to his captors in the few moments of his incarceration is beyond me. He made it back to the Green, on foot, to hear the first shots fired. If he said anything to the British Regulars in his time of being held and questioned, I have no idea how this modern day non-historian would have a clue. Paul Revere himself, in his own disposition letters mentions nothing of the sort. I don't much care what "support" she might gain from the "Tea Party" and others who like the woman. She is as dumb as a box of hair sometimes, and proves it over and over again without prompting, or "gotcha" questions.
