Walking with Superman: Day 81
The calls come into various authorities from all across Middlesex County, Massachusetts. Police receive numerous noise complaints, from the ringing of bells to the firing of guns. Late-night radio hosts and the Department of Extranormal Operations receive claims of spectral horsemen, racing loudly across the countryside. Some dismiss the reports as the activities of bored teenagers, others chalk it up to the mischievousness of poltergeists, but when seven hundred phantom British Army Regulars rise up in Boston and begin their deadly spectral march to Concord, it suddenly becomes clear that those "poltergeists" were actually the spirits of William Dawes, Samuel Prescott, and Paul Revere, trying to raise the alarm. Now, Superman stands against the ghostly redcoats, but what can anyone do against a regiment of dead men?
