“So started the first battle in the American Revolutionary War.”

However, these were not the first shots fired during the war. The firsts shots were fired the previous December in Portsmouth, NH at the Fort William & Mary. The colonists broke into the fort and stloe munitions. I believe a British soldier was shot.
