April 19, 1775

The American Revolutionary War began with a series of military engagements between the towns of Lexington and Concord on April 19, 1775. This became known as the “Shot Heard ‘round the World” and marks the outbreak of armed conflict between Great Britain and the American colonies.

On April 18th, Gage was ordered to send his army to Concord to destroy a stash of Militia military supplies (including weapons and gunpowder). Upon hearing of these orders and believing that the objective was the capture of Samuel Adams and John Hancock, Doctor Joseph Warren sent William Dawes and Paul Revere to warn them. 

After making sure Adams and Hancock were safely hidden and protected, it was agreed that they would continue to Concord and make sure the supplies were safe. So Dawes, Revere and several other riders rode out to spread word and raise the militias. On the way, Dawes and Revere came across Samuel Prescott who was on his way home to Concord and decided to join them men in alerting the colonists. The three of them made it halfway to Concord when they were detained by British patrol. Dawes and Revere were captured (later released to make their way back to Lexington) but Prescott got away and continued on to Concord.

The British Army’s advanced guard, under Pitcairn, were met at Lexington by the Lexington militiamen on April 19, 1775. Amongst a great deal of confusion and yelling a shot rang out as the two armies met. Nobody knew then, nor knows today, who fired but that shot was to be the first shot of the American Revolution. This is what is now known as the “Shot Heard ‘round the World”. 

The Lexington militiamen were defeated and the British troops moved forward towards Concord. The militiamen at Concord were ready for the British Army thanks to the raised alarm and managed to encircle the regulars who were advancing on Concord. After numerous casualties, the British commander ordered his troops to return to Boston. The British regulars, having been routed by the militiamen, began their march back to Lexington and Boston.

On their return march, they were faced with several groups of militiamen who caused a great deal of damage to their troops. The total number of losses were roughly 300 British and 100 Americans. The battles of Lexington and Concord roused New Englanders to begin the Siege of Boston which resulted in the British evacuation by March 1776 and thus beginning the American War for Independence.
