Minute Men eat minute rice..?

Minute Men were colonists who could be ready to go at a moments notice. The Colonists knew something was going to happen, but not when so they were always ready to hear the call of the messengers.

Listen my friends and you shall hear the midnight ride of William Dawes...that doesn't flow well, ok, how about midnight ride of Paul Revere.

William Dawes, and Paul Revere were both messengers, and it was their job to alert people of the British's movements. On the night of April 18, 1775 it was time to spring into action.

The British were mobilizing towards Lexington and Revere and Dawson were off...

They rode through towns yelling and alerting the other Colonists. Minute Men prepared to leave..well except the ones that just figured the town crier was drunk again.
