JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — Sarah Palin's version of Paul Revere's ride has triggered a tug of war over the Wikipedia entry on that historic event that left the page shielded against further changes.

Dozens of changes were made to the Revere page on the Internet site Sunday and Monday after Palin claimed Revere's famous ride was intended to warn both his fellow colonists and British soldiers. On Monday, the page featured a padlock, which Wikimedia Foundation spokesman Jay Walsh said provides a cooling-off period when there are numerous attempts to edit a site.

A chat area included sections headlined "Sarah Palin's army needs to go away," although Walsh said it's difficult — given how Wikipedia is set up — to say with certainty that those seeking to add Palin's statements are her supporters.
