Listen my children and you shall hear
Of the midnight ride of Paul Revere,
On the eighteenth of April, in Seventy-five;
Hardly a man is now alive
Who remembers that famous day and year.
The horseman is, of course, not Paul Revere. Today is also the day in 1025 when Boleslaw the Brave was crowned king of Poland, so I have posted a Polish cavalier (who, in fact, never charged German tanks, that’s Nazi propaganda).
