Paul Revere rode into town telling everyone: "The British are coming!"
The Minutemen and Redcoats lined up at Lexington. Then, out of nowhere came a shot that was so momentous it could be heard clear around the world. This caused the British to fire on the Minutemen.
Then at Concord, the colonists ambushed the British, forcing them to retreat. As their enemy retreated, the colonists used the hit, run,and hide tactic all the way to Boston.
