Battle of Lexington and Concord Map Activity

The Battle of Lexington and Concord, “the shots heard around the world.” These shots by American patriots against British Redcoats were the first of the American Revolution.

On April 18, 1775, British troops marched out of Boston on a mission to confiscate the suspected American arsenal at Concord and to capture Rebel (Patriot) leaders Samuel Adams and John Hancock, known to be hiding at Lexington. As the British departed, Boston Patriots Paul Revere and William Dawes set out on horseback from the city to warn Adams and Hancock and rouse the Minutemen.
