The first martyr was a slave called Crispus Attucks and the colonists later used him as propaganda to show how horrible the British were and how they fired first and killed the colonists

  • As a result of the Boston tea party the British government added the Boston port act on march 31, 1774. This meant that the Boston port would be closed and that payments were made to the east India company. The British also put a rule called quartering were any of the British soldiers were allowed to knock at anyone's door and the american would provide them with food, drink, shelter and would iron there clothes.
  • At dawn on April 19, some 700 British troops arrived in Lexington and came upon 77 militiamen gathered on the town green. The heavily outnumbered militiamen had just been ordered by their commander to disperse when a shot rang out. To this day, no one knows which side fired first. Several British volleys were subsequently unleashed before order could be restored. When the smoke cleared, eight militiamen lay dead and nine were wounded, while only one Redcoat was injured.The shot as known as the shot heard around the world.
  • The British then continued into Concord to search for arms, not realizing that the vast majority had already been relocated. They decided to burn what little they found, and the fire got slightly out of control. Hundreds of militiamen occupying the high ground outside of Concord incorrectly thought the whole town would be torched. The militiamen hustled to Concord’s North Bridge.The militia men then attacked the British catching them off guard and winning the battle
