The Shot Heard Round the World

Since the end of the French and Indian War, American colonists had to endure many real and perceived encroachments on earnings and rights. In 1774, General Howe closed down Boston Harbor. At that point, many Bostonians and those living in the environs outside had a feeling that something would happen.

The events that transpired starting in the early morning of April 19th sealed the deal. What began as an attempt by the Crown to secure ammunition and stores in Concord ended up being the final straw for many Colonists.
