leahbobet posted the chat transcript this time: This way for Ikea in the 25th century!

This week in history: post rider Israel Bissell's 1775 ride from Watertown, Massachusetts to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to warn of the advent of war.

Through the propaganda of that Longfellow er, fellow, history recollects the other guy, the silversmith who rode from Boston to Cambridge for a total of 19 miles in company of William Dawes, but Bissell, a Connecticut native, rode 345 miles in a little over four days, provided with fresh horses along the way.

Connecticut, aptly, named a bridge after him.
