Background

The Battle of Lexington and Concord took place in my home state of Massachusetts on April 19, 1775. The battle took place because after the Tolerable Act was passed, tensions built in the Boston area, so England commanded the governor and commanding chief Thomas Gage to seize and attack the rebel forces which I am a leader for, we were forming an attack and a revolt against Thomas Gage and his army. The outcomes of these battles were the British suffered 273 wounded, 72 of men killed form our unstoppable rebel forces. The Americans sadly suffered 46 wounded and another 49 dead. Additionally the Americans had succeeded over the British causing them to retreat out of my land of Massachusetts. Overall, the Battles at Lexington and Concord were the start of a horrific 8-year war called the Revolutionary War. My name is John Hancock and I am a leader for the rebel forces fighting against our mother country of England in the Battle of Lexington and Concord. I am discussed with the actions of England passing punitive laws against us colonist. We as colonist have the right to have representation in England’s Parliament. That is one reason why you should join the militia to fight for our freedom. The English sent a troop of 700 men to confiscate our weapons, what did they think we were going to go down without a fight, we founght with the English on the 19th of April year 1775 in Lexington Massachusetts. The army was not a proper army, however together as an army we had the spirit and courage to over come those no good, rotten English and we did. After this victory against England there was no way us colonist were going to give up fighting for the freedom of the colonies.
