This is the start of the story. Here's some more. Tom loved to read about history. Especially, early US history. He wishes he could have experienced events leading to the victory over the British in the American Revolution. Paul Revere was always one of his heroes and he loved to read about the midnight ride and dream about his ride that night.
Recently, Christopher Lloyd visited Tom and told him about his DeLorean, a vehicle that might give him an opportunity to realize his dream. Tom accepted Lloyd's offer to borrow the car for a trip back to April 18, 1875.
After getting in and setting the date, he slowly reved the engine and took off. The DeLorean had to reach 120 MPH before it could break the time barrier and Tom knew he only had about a mile and a half to do that. He put the car in gear and floored it, squealing the tires and throwing dust everywhere.
Poof! Tom landed in Massachussets and was faced with three men wearing clothes that are not sold in Macy's. Most prominent were the large hats with three corners.
Just heard we were supposed to wrap this up. So Tom woke up in Granary Burial Ground off Boston Commons across from the Paul Revere burial site and looked at a discarded newspaper. The Headlines read "Boston beats Cleveland" and was dated 10/22/2007.
