Paul Revere was a lumberjack who had a big blue ox. I think. Sorry, I'm a Brit and we have no idea who this bloke is. There was Paul Revere's ride, so maybe he had a theme park? I dunno.
He's famous for riding Babe, his blue ox. waving his axe over his head and shouting The red coats are coming, the red coats and coming. Meant you, probably?
His battle cry was picked up years later by a Senator Joe McCarthy, who, having a difficult time remembering all those words, just shortened it to, The REDS are coming, the REDS are coming.
This short section is taken from Andrew what's his name from the other wiki's US History for ____________. (fill in the blank).
Not to be confused with the horse Mike D rode in the Beastie Boys song "Paul Revere".
