Monday marks a little recognized anniversary

Most are probably familiar with what happened on "the eighteenth of April in Seventy-five."

But Wikipedia notes Paul Revere took an earlier ride as well:
On April 8, Paul Revere rode to Concord to warn the inhabitants that the British appeared to be planning an expedition. The townspeople decided to remove the (weapons and ammunition) stores and distribute them among other towns nearby.
