      One of Andy's points at the end is about the inaccuracies of Longfellow's Midnight Ride of Paul Revere." What Andy failed to point out is that the poem had as much to do with the American Revolution as "The Man Without a Country" had to do with the War of 1812. Both were about loyalty and support of the Union. Longfellow was published in the Atlantic in December 1860, a call for patriotism against the secessionists.
