*One If by Land, Two If by Sea*

These are the famous words used by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow in his poem Paul Revere’s Ride,” to describe the signal used to guide the “midnight ride of Paul Revere” at the start of the Revolutionary War.  Revere had ordered two lanterns to be placed in the Old North Church Tower in Boston, to warn his confederates that the British were on the move.  Longfellow embellished the story just a little.  Anyway, this is Paul Revere’s gravestone in Boston.…….or is it? Our guide told us that when people saw the REAL stone, they were so disappointed time and time again, that it was decided to put this larger one up.  The original one is underneath.
