Bluebird On A Limb: 

It was about 5: a.m., on April 18, 1775, when 700 British troops were on a mission to capture Patriot leaders, along with seizure of their arsenal. When marching into Lexington they found 77 armed minutemen, under command of Captain John Parker, waiting for them on the town’s common green. Gravely outnumbered, British Major John Pitcairn ordered the Patriots to disperse. Though wanting to fight, they hesitantly drifted off the green. When suddenly a shot was fired from an undetermined direction. Soon a cloud of musket smoke covered the green leading into a brief battle. It was a shot that was heard around the world, and the brief Battle of Lexington ended with 8 Americans lay dead or dying, and ten more were wounded. Only a single British soldier was injured. With this event the American Revolution had begun.
