PIL S1:E7 – Caesar Rodney's Midnight Ride

Subscribe to the podcast.

If I started to tell you about a man who heroically strapped his horse and went upon a midnight ride at great personal risk for the American cause, you’d think I’m talking about Paul Revere. While Revere’s actions were indeed heroic, this story of a midnight rider is actually about Caesar Rodney.

A man who has largely been forgotten in history, Caesar Rodney of Delaware is the sole individual who saved the vote for Independence. Hear about his heroic story during this week’s episode.
