Sarah Palin’s Paul Revere Fact Check
Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin roared into town on her “One Nation” national bus tour last week to walk Boston’s famed Freedom Trail. Along the way, some comments she made about Paul Revere set off a ferocious fact-checking mission among journalists, historians, and bloggers alike. But was she actually wrong? Is it revisionist history on the part of Palin, or are we just not that clear on what really happened on the fateful night of April 18, 1775? Joining us to get to the bottom of this is at Boston University history professor Brendan J. McConville.
