Paul Revere, not just a Midnight Rider
Way, way, back in history.....The House of Representatives sent a letter to each of the colonies criticizing King George III and his policy of "Taxation Without Representation". The British Ministry demanded the letter be rescinded. A brave step was taken, and a vote was cast NOT to rescind the letter. In June of 1768, Paul Revere (an amazing silver smith) was commissioned by The Sons of Liberty (a colonial secret society) to hammer up a silver bowl. The original "Liberty Bowl" was engraved with names of the men who voted against the British crown. The original is on display at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts. ...What!?...you don't need a history lesson? Okay, but before I dismiss class, here is a fun summer arrangement designed in a reproduction Revere bowl.
