Allison has a right to his own interpretation of history. Who knows? Maybe he supports Palin politically. Certainly, there are plenty of other historians who do not agree that "Palin got her history right". http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/sarah-palins-account-paul-reveres-midnight-ride-shot/story?id=1377374...
