411 Fath's Fun Fact Fridays

Sorry it's been so long for the fun facts! Life has been busy, to say the least. Here's a fun history fact that my little sister and dad brag about knowing all the time.

Did you know...

...the horse that Paul Revere rode ("The British are coming, the British are coming!") was not actually his horse? It was a borrowed horse named Brown Betty. This famous ride marked the beginning of the American Revolution. Revere was captured toward the end of his ride but was later released.
