Bachmann Mangles Revolutionary History In N.H.!
"What I love about New Hampshire and what we have in common is our extreme love for liberty," the potential GOP presidential candidate said. "You're the state where the shot was heard around the world in Lexington and Concord. And you put a marker in the ground and paid with the blood of your ancestors the very first price that had to be paid to make this the most magnificent nation that has ever arisen in the annals of man in 5,000 years of recorded history."
In fact, the 1775 Battles of Lexington and Concord that marked the first military engagements of the American Revolution took place in Massachusetts. But Bachmann did not correct her error when she referenced the battles again later in her speech.
But I guess it's OK...because here's what she later posted on her Facebook page! "So I misplaced the battles Concord and Lexington by saying they were in New Hampshire. It was my mistake. And by the way... That will be the last time I borrow President Obama's teleprompter!"
