Roughly 700 British troops encountered less than a hundred militiamen on the Lexington town green. Suddenly, a shot rang out. Multiple volleys ensued and several militiamen were shot dead. It remains unclear which side fired first.
The British continued onto Concord to search for illegal arms but the colonists had moved a majority of their stash elsewhere. The Redcoats burned what was left and then clashed again with the militiamen, this time at Concord's North Bridge. Here, the 'Shot Heard Round the World' was fired.
In the end, the militia was able to drive the powerful British forces back to Boston in a strategic American victory. The rebellion of the thirteen colonies was underway. #history#revolution#america
