  • The Midnight Ride
  • The First Blow
  • The Spy
  • It was April 1775 when a spy told the King's commander in British Troops in America, General Gage that the colonists were hiding a large amount of gunpowder and weapons in Concord.
  • Why did the British want the colonists' gunpowder and weapons?
  • On April 8, 1775 when Gage's best 700 troops were marching 20 miles to Concord surprise attack the colonists so that they don't move the weapons and gun powder, but what they didn't know is that the colonists had an eye on them because they too had a spy.
