Oops! Michele Bachmann Blunders Revolutionary War Geography

ABC News(BARRINGTON, N.H.) -- Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann caused a fracas over an inaccurate comment she made about the Revolutionary War during a Republican Liberty Caucus in New Hampshire on Saturday.

“You’re the state where the shot was heard around the world at Lexington and Concord,” she said at the event, which was held in Barrington, N.H.

Everyday students of history of course know that Lexington and Concord are in Massachusetts.

Bachmann, a darling of the Tea Party, is rumored to be planning a presidential campaign in 2012.
