Israel Bissell

When I posted to my blog yesterday night, I meant to include an image of the Broadside that Israel Bissell carried that night of his ride.

This man rode over 300 miles to deliver this message to everyone along his route. He started out at 10 am in Watertown, MA on April 19, 1775 and arrived in Philadelphia on April 23, 1775 at 5 pm.
