    Default Listen My Children And you Shall Hear...

    Of the midnight ride of --- Israel Bissell?
    http://www.bayequest.info/unbridled/...ews-revere.htm

    His ride was much longer than Paul Revere's, and he lost a "fast white horse" in the process.

    This is essentially it. Same story gets passed around every Patriot's Day. Apparently the poem was written to show Longfellow's views on succession & slavery. Revere was an easier rhyme.

    We Nutmeggers have a better version, anyway. Sorry, Mass:
