  • Lexington

    Lexington was the first battle to unfold in the Revolutionary War. Some people say the shot that started it was, "heard around the world." The British were on their way to get the colonists' ammo in Concord. But, the townspeople in Lexington were not about to hand over their guns.
    This ended badly for Lexington, for they lost lives.
    The British did not care, and marched on to Concord.
