In April 1775, a spy told General Gage that the colonists were hiding a large supply of gunpowder and weapons in the nearby village of Concord. General Gage decided to strike at once. The general ordered 700 of his best troops to march to Concord and seize the weapons. To keep the colonists from moving the weapons, the attack had to be a surprise, so Gage had his troops march the 20 miles to Concord at night. Had to move arsenal. They were told not to shoot first (lost at Lexington) were able to get away.
