Battle of Lexington

Now this is an experience I will never forget! British troops were marching towards Concord to secure ammunition. On the way, they had to pass through Lexington to capture Samuel Adams and John Hancock. This proved to be difficult, as they had to confront the brave militia coming out of Buckman’s Tavern. This clash took place on Lexington Green and was the location of the first shot fired in the American Revolutionary War. When Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote about the “shot heard round the world” he was talking about this first shot. Mistakenly he believed it to be at the Battle of Concord but you and the Adventurers’ Crew saw where it really happened.
