One if by land, two if by sea ...

This is a picture from the Old North Church where Paul Revere and the boys hung the lanterns telling the militia where the English were attacking from.  It really wasn't by sea, it was by the Charles River and Paul didn't actually hang any lanterns, but he was the key planner and rode the horse warning all the countryside that the British were coming.

Overseeing all this now from a corner of the church is George Washington with a look I've never seen for him in a painting:

Now THAT looks like a general!

We saw more, but I need to have separate time to do many of the other famous sites!  Until we meet again.
