Script Details

***Please submit a custom demo*** 
An hour before the break of day I heard the Lexington bell ring, and I immediately arose, took my gun and with Robert Douglass went in haste to Lexington, which was about three miles distant. When I arrived there, I inquired of Captain Parker.

Parker led those of us who were equipped to the north end of Lexington Common, near the Bedford Road, and formed us in single file.

The British troops approached us rapidly in platoons, with a general officer on horseback at their head. The officer came up to within about two rods of the center of the company, where I stood. The officer then swung his sword, and said, "Lay down your arms, you damned rebels, or you are all dead men…Fire!" Some guns were fired by the British at us from the first platoon.

Captain Parker ordered every man to take care of himself. The company immediately dispersed, and the second platoon of the British fired and killed some of our men. There was not a gun fired by any of Captain Parker's Company, within my knowledge.

The English soon were on their march for Concord. I helped carry six dead into the meetinghouse, and then set out after the enemy and had not an armed man to go with me. But before I arrived at Concord, I see one of the grenadiers standing sentinel. I cocked my piece and run up to him, seized his gun with my left hand.

He surrendered his armor, one gun and bayonet, a large cutlass and brass fender, one box over the shoulder with 22 rounds, one box round the waist with 18 rounds. This was the first prisoner that was known to be taken that day.
