After the Boston Tea Party, the British government seized control of Boston and the Massachusets colony. The Intolerable or Coercive Acts made colonists have no freedom because they had to provide shelter to soldiers. The British personnel also watched everyone, everywhere so if the rebellious continued they would stop it. But, this irritated most colonists.
When a British personnel heard of the Minutemen and their supply of arms in Concord in a conversation, he told the new Massachusetts governor about this shocking news. The governor instructed troops to go at night and seize control of the supply. The troops accepted the offer and decided to go on April 18, 1775.
On the afternoon of April 18, 1775 the British troops made their march to Concord and started the carnage. The British troops had many casualties. At the end, the troops retreated and withdrew back to Boston. They fought an abundant number of Minutemen. After the scrimmage, they went back to Boston and told the governer. They didn't know this was going to mark the beginning of the Revolutionary War.
