The first shots starting the revolution were fired at Lexington Massachutes on April 18 1775 British Genral Thomas Gage sent 700 soldiers to destroy guns and ammo the colonist stored in the town of Concord

On the night of April 18 1775 hundreds of British troops marhched from Boston to nearby Concord in order to seize an arms cache Paul Revere and others sounded an alarm and colonol minutemen began mobilzing to intercept the Redcoat Colum a confrontation on the Lexington town green started off the fighting, and soon the British were reatreating under fire many more battles followed and in 1783 the colonist won there independince

Starting in 1764 great brittain enacted a series of messures aimed at raising revanue from its 13 colanies many of those including townshend acts and the stampt act made resnment among colonies who protest against tax and more lead up to battles of lexington and concord

At Massachutes when the battle ended the Redcoats retreated under fire and many more battles followed and in 1783 the colonist won there independence

"Stand your ground,Dont fire unless fired upon,but if they want a war let it begin here" Captin John Paarker said to his Minute Men on Lexington April 19 1775

The early months of 1775 were periods of a great anxitey at Massachutes,they city of Boston had a large group of Redcoats who took care of people with increasingly sullen populance insults and fights between those two sides were commonplace.The tension was heightened.The port of Boston was closed from the Tea Party.

On April 18 as the Brittish marched to Lexington and Concord Paul Rever and his men warned the colanist and prepared for battle the Minutemen started to defend themselves,and the British retreated suffering heavy lossess and the Colanist won there independence

The American Revolution was a very mixed up thing of how it came to be.Many arguments with America and the Brittish were made and one day they declared war. When the battles started,they had Minutemen,A thing called Tea Party and The Boston Massacare Then America fought the Brittish and then came The Battle Of Lexington and Concord.When the Brittish marched to Lexington, a man named Paul Rever rode his horse to warn collonist.When the battles started The Americans won and The Brittish retreated suffering heavy lossess.
