The first shots of the Revolution rang out April 19 1775 at Lexington green. Reports say the British fired first killing eight patriots. I believe these reports to be true. There was a lot of controversy surrounding this, since none of us were there, no one can be certain on who fired first. Evidence shows the British fired first. I think based on the evidence provided it was very easy to see the British were the first to fire the shot of the revolution.
Though it has been called a battle, it was more of a skirmish. It happened on April 19th the year 1775 in Middlesex Country, province of Massachusetts Bay during the American Revolution. The British were marching to Concord because of the arms depot of the Americans. The Americans were out-numbered, out-gunned, and not as well trained at the British soldiers. On the side of the road there were 40 to 100 speculators of this event. When the British arrived one of the officers rode forward waving his sword and called out to the militia to disperse and go home, as well as telling them “Lay down your arms, you damned rebels!” But the Americans did not lay down their arms so the British commander Major John Pitcairn told his men to hold fire as did the Americans leader, Captain John Parker, who was a veteran from the French and Indian War (1754-1763). But, a shot was fired from an unknown source. By the end of the fight eight militia men lay
¨The shot heard around the world.¨ This was the start of the revolutionary war at the battle of Lexington and Concord. The revolutionary war was the war that gave us are independence and we achieved it. There were three main causes of the war. They were, the Proclamation of 1763, the Townshend Acts, and the Boston Massacre.
The Battles of Lexington and Concord were the start of the American Revolution. The battles were fought on April 19, 1775 when an armed militia of patriots in Lexington, called the Minutemen because they supposedly could assemble in a minute, awaited the British army who marched to Lexington to capture John Hancock and Samuel Adams, two revolutionary leaders. The British heavily outnumbered the colonists. The two sides were not yet fighting when a single gunshot was fired. To this day, no one knows which side fired the first shot, but the battles that day caused the beginning of military violence between Great Britain and the American Colonists.
On the evening of April 18, 1775, there were shots fired between the British and the Colonists. The question on the table here is; Who fired first? The event of the shooting took place in Lexington near the Bedford road. Both parties claim the other company is responsible for the shots fired. The British say they came into the colonists’ area, yet they did not fire until the colonists did. On the other side, the colonists state the British came in and fired, so they dispersed but did not shoot. This was the case until one individual confessed to giving them “the guts of his gun” from a distance after the rest had fled. Both companies have very different statements. I have sided with the colonists sin believing the British fired first.
Who was the first one to fire in the Battle of Lexington? The Battle of Lexington was fought between the British and the thirteen Colonies. The day before the British and Colonist were already arguing over taxes. There are so many different sides to this story. This battle led up to the Revolutionary War. When the British and Colonist got together, the British stated, “Put down all your weapons, you damned rebels, or we will kill you all.” After that the Colonists’ captain ordered every man to take care of himself. Now I will tell you how I think the British shot first.
The battle happened in Lexington, Massachusetts. The battle took place on April 22, 1775. The shot was a shot that was heard around the whole world. Either the British or the Colonist fired the shot first. Who do you think fired the shot first colonist or British. Because It says “ The country people shot so the soldiers shot back and killed almost all of them”. I think the British fired first who do you think did?
The Battle of Lexington and Concord started when a group of militiamen went out to stop British soldiers who were on their way seize guns that the colonists had stockpiled. Both sides were told not to fire unless fired upon. A shot was fired from someone in the crowd of militiamen and soldiers. Gunshots exploded from both sides. Once the first shot was fired it was chaos. Eight militiamen were killed and several wounded. No soldiers were killed and one was wounded. No one knows who fired the first
On the night of 18 April 1775, hundreds of British troops set off from Boston toward Concord, Massachusetts, to seize weapons and ammunition stockpiled by American colonists. Early the next morning, an advance guard of nearly 240 British soldiers reached Lexington. Paul Revere’s famous ride ahead of the British departure from Boston alerted a group of nearly 70 Minutemen along the route from Lexington through to Concord. When the British finally arrived the Minutemen were waiting and prepared. In the midst of all the confusion and commotion, someone suddenly fired a shot—it’s uncertain which side—and a melee ensued. When the brief clash ended, eight Americans lay dead and at least an equal amount were injured, while one redcoat was wounded. The British continued on to nearby Concord, where that same day they encountered armed resistance from a group of patriots at the town’s North Bridge. Gunfire was exchanged, leaving two colonists and three redcoats dead. Afterward, the British retreated back to Boston, skirmishing with colonial militiamen along the way and suffering a number of casualties. The Revolutionary War had begun. But how different
Who shot first? In my opinion, I think the colonists shot first. There are a few reason I think this. For one, I think the colonists shot first because the redcoats were already on the march to the colonists and that might’ve meant they were about to shoot first. Sylvanus Affidavit and Robert Douglass were on their way to Lexington. Upon their arrival, a messenger came up to Captain Parker to inform him that the Redcoats were within half a mile. I think the reason the redcoats were within a mile is because that they wanted to start war, or in other words, shoot the shot that was heard around the world. That is my take on the “Shot Heard Around the World”.
The battle took place in Lexington, Massachusetts. It was April 19th,1775.We’re learning about The Shot heard around the World. It was the British vs The Colonist. I think the British fired first. The reason I think the British fired first is simple. The British did not want the Colonist to have their own country. That’s why I think the British fired first.

A significant moment occurred for the founding of the United States at Lexington and Concord. This significant moment is know as “The shot heard round the world.” The British heard that the colonists had a good amount of guns and gun powder in Lexington they decided to act. On April 18, 1775 General Thomas Gage sent 1,000 from Boston. He did this in the night hoping to catch the colonists by surprise. Gage did not know that the colonists had patriots watching out for them. This is when Paul Revere rode back to town and warned the colonists the British are
Nevertheless, Susan family, in contrast, which is a traditional family, members include a father and a mother, and her biological son, Dylan. It is true that Dylan will have a better life than Kevin, ironically, he became a person who “could shoot someone” (Susan, par 1). According to his mother, “as a young child, Dylan made parenting easy” that means that Dylan has been a good guy. So a reason why made him change like this, “could shoot someone”. After this, looking back his background, he had parents who have enough good condition for caring their child carefully, he also had a good environmental growth, as well as full educated. In generally, Dylan would like other ones, acept these common things to develop his own ability, but he did not,
I would have another activity for the students to do to help solidify the concept in their minds. I would also include an activity that would have more learning styles in them. I believe I tried to push my students into a higher level of thinking before they had the basics on the concept down The advisement activity was great for all students because it has learn by seeing, hearing, and doing in the activity. As Mihut states, “Learning is active, innovative, creative and purposeful…” and if you can incorporate those into your lesson more students
