Lexington and Concord

1775

april 30th, 1775

I was sitting on my bed waiting for my slave to heat up the water for my tub. I was reading a broad side about the "shot heard round the world" (which was the first shoot in the battle of Lexington & Concord ) it said that the british fired it. I said "I need some air" I opened the window. I saw Lord Dunmore carrying stuff to a ship. I went down stairs my wife was crying because she was worried about my son joining the militia.Paul Revere just marched past my house leading a giant army of men they said"return the gun powder!"he ran on the ship and gave it back but then but then he paid him 372 pounds but then he ran on to the ship I stopped watching to calm my wife down.
