You blasted colonists are running my royal exchequer broke! This damned war has nearly bankrupted my country and you are going to start paying some taxes.
Milord, may I request that we at least receive some representation in your most gracious of Parliaments

The "Shot Heard Round the World" was fired in Lexington, MA, on Wednesday April 19, 1775, during the battles of Lexington and Concord. The Americans were initially defeated but regrouped and made a successful counterattack.
