There is alot of great stuff on there like this exert from another article:

how many people are aware that Revere did not ride completely alone, but was assisted the night of April 18, 1775 by William Dawes and Dr. Samuel Prescott once he had reached Lexington? How many of us are aware that Revere did not complete his ride, but that it was Prescott alone who made it to Concord?

I knew that. Seriously. I had a teacher in HS that hated that Revere got all of the credit yet was not the sole rider. He said that it was the first instance of a PR campaign in the new United States. LOL
