HISTORY LESSON: The Battle of Lexington and Concord took place after Paul Revere's infamous midnight ride and was one of the first signs of an established citizen militia, or "minutemen." Thanks to Revere's warning, the citizens were prepared for the British regulars' arrival, turning the battle around on its head and showing them that they were not to be messed with. The regulars, generally angry and miffed at the outrageous disrespect, turned their tails on the fight.
I love this comic by itself, first of all. But then I also get really excited when I read your "History Lesson." It's not that, (as I'm a History Major) I don't know the History, I just find your little comments on it adorable. :)
