Friday Flash 55.....


.
.
All ports were closed!
The entire city was on lock-down in the wake of their little 'Tea Party".
Everyone knew that those red coated bastards were coming, They just didn't know how or when. As the silversmith stared at the Old North Church's steeple, he saw the glow of two lanterns.... He saddled his horse!!

.

.

If you or anyone you know has written a Friday Flash 55
Please come tell the G-Man.
I will visit, read, enjoy, comment...Then BOOK!!!
So from the most in need of a vacation host from coast to coast.
Have a Kick Ass Holiday Week-End!!!
Happy Fourth of July!!!!!!!!!!

Although, in fact, there were about 60 riders doing the warning. Another interesting thing - he never said, "The British are coming" since he and other colonists considered themselves British. He told a guard who stopped that the "regulars" were out. Ah, the myths we are raised on!

Alice Audrey said...

What was he to think with three, though? I mean, I'd have hesitated anyway.

Mine is here.

Love it! There are so many great stories in American history. My thanks to Paul Revere and to Longfellow for always being able to remember my nephew's birthday (18th April LOL)

I'm finally getting back into normal, meanwhile, even managed a 55 for you this week.
