They took place in the Province of Massachusetts Bay, one of the 13 original U.S. states, within the neighboring towns of Lexington, Concord, Lincoln, Cambridge and present-day Arlington.Hundreds of British soldiers marched from Boston to nearby Concord on the night of April 18 to destroy an arms cache collected by the American colonists. Paul Revere and other riders alerted colonial Minutemen of the plan, who then mobilized to intercept the Redcoats.The British army outnumbered the Americans on the battlefield in Lexington and headed for Concord shortly after. But they were surprised by a counterattack from the colonists upon their arrival, forcing the Redcoats to hastily retreat to Boston. That day, 49 Americans and 73 British were killed. The fighting proved to the American colonists that they could defeat the British. After years of warfare when the cause often seemed lost, the colonies formally won their independence from Great Britain in 1783.What’s open and what’s closed?
