"The Headquarters of the Revolution"

This is awesome:

Daniel Webster called America’s colonial taverns “The headquarters of the Revolution.” Patrons of this tavern knew it as “The listening post of the Revolution”; they knew that Washington made his headquarters at that building of like vintage just across the creek. Actually, this tavern’s colonial patrons called it simply Mabie’s, for its tavernkeeper.

If I could start this joint all over again, I'd name it The Headquarters of the Revolution. I love that. Nobody ever understood that Jiblog was just my nickname ('Jib') and 'blog' smushed together, anyway.
