I'm a Winner

Each month the Lighthouse Depot sends out an e-dispatch of news on lighthouses which includes 3 trivia questions. You don't have to answer all three to win. They choose a winner for each question from the correct answers received. I answered two of the questions and won for one of them.
"Although I no longer stand, having been replaced by another tower,
I witnessed what has been called by many as the "First Overt Act of the
Revolution," by the colonists in America. What is the name of this lighthouse?"
(The correct answer is Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouse, which is also known as
Fort Point Lighthouse and Fort Constitution Lighthouse in New Castle, NH. The
lighthouse was located at Fort William and Mary. Paul Revere made one of his
famous rides to warn the colonists that the British were coming to reinforce the
fort, which resulted in the first overt act of the Revolutionary War. The Fort,
now known as Fort Constitution, is owned by the State of New Hampshire, which
has not been a good steward in its care of the fort. Congratulations to Kathleen
Bradley of Illinois
whose name was randomly picked from among the correct

I was thrilled when I read that I had won and now I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of my prize to know what I won. It doesn't matter what I won, but the fact that I won is what really matters. When I receive the prize, I'll post an update.
