In the continuing saga, in which Palin is being savaged and mocked, please listen to this NPR interview with Robert Allison, a professor and historian at Suffolk University, in which Allison argues that while Palin may have had some details wrong, she mostly was correct about Paul Revere’s ride, including the ringing of bells and firing of shots as warning to the British:
Q. So you think basically on the whole Sarah Palin got her history right?
A. Well yes she did, now remember she’s a politician she’s not a historian, and God help us when historians start acting like politicians, and I suppose policitians start writing history.
