The Illustrator from Lexington, Mass.

Christopher Bing made a book of a famous poem about the beginning of the American Revolution. He did the layout and drew all the pictures. He was kind enough to sit with Mom and me and go over each page explaining lots of details. The following are lines from the poem and go like this: One if by land, Two if by sea, and on the opposite shore I'll be. Do you know who the "I'll" is? A clue----he was an American patriot, a Son of Liberty, who made beautiful silverware----using real silver.
He was also involved in the Boston Tea Party.
