    Barring Revere "gait" (we already know your opinion on that) give us some examples of where she was right.

    Paul Revere
    Revolutionary War Figure

    Born: December 1734
    Died: 10 May 1818
    Birthplace: Boston, Massachusetts

    Best known as: The American colonist of midnight ride fame

    A hero of the American Revolutionary War, Paul Revere is famous for his "midnight ride" of April 18th, 1775, when he sounded the alarm that British forces were moving against American colonists.

    His fame is due in part to the 1861 poem "Paul Revere's Ride" by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, which begins: "Listen my children and you shall hear, of the midnight ride of Paul Revere." Paul Revere was an accomplished gold and silversmith, and as a Boston artisan he was smack in the middle of pre-revolutionary action.

    He served as a rider for the Committee of Correspondence, and between 1773 and 1775 Revere relayed messages about British troop movements from Boston to Philadelphia, New York and Hartford.

    When British general Thomas Gage was about to move against revolutionary-minded colonists in Massachusetts, Revere and William Dawes were given the task of alerting the colonist rebels. Revere's efforts that night, his services during the war for independence and his later success as a businessman in Boston and Canton, Massachusetts, made him a local hero. Longfellow's poem, published nationally and included in Tales of a Wayside Inn in 1863, made Revere a legendary figure -- although the facts needed to be corrected in later years.

    Paul Revere never actually said "the British are coming!" (he called them "regulars"), and he and Dawes (and a latecomer patriot, Dr. Samuel Prescott) were captured by the British and detained -- but Dawes and Prescott escaped and got the word out. Nonetheless, Paul Revere is remembered for his active role in events preceding the Revolutionary War, and for his metalworking talent and entrepreneurial savvy.

    You realize that the war didn't actually begin until 19 April. Yes?

    It wasn't a, "time of war".

    The British weren't, "attacking, invading, assaulting, etc.".

    Yes, I'm from America and I've very knowledgable in American history, especially military history. Your premise, is wrong.

    She doesn't make GAFFES, per say--that means we believe she knows better and just misspoke. Palin has become known for revealing a stunning lack of knowledge on a number of topics, then, after looking like an idiot, she doubles-down and defends her idiotic statements.

    I think technically he's right.

    Paul Revere's ride was April 18, 1775.

    The Battles of Lexington and Concord were the first military engagements of the American Revolutionary War, and they were fought on April 19, 1775... the next day.
