Topic: battle of lexington and concord


who fired the first shot at the battle of lexington and concord? the americans or the british? and why we may ask. The british were advancing to concord but the american minute men were in their way. Does this mean that the british fired the first shot? Or could the americans, with the taste of blood, ignored major pitcairn and fired on the brits any way? we may never know. what are you opinions?

Vin diesel fired the first shot at the battle of lexington and concord

now time to get serious....
it was probably the Americans because they had less men so one of their guys got scared and shot....
just my 2 cents

Neither, some bystander with a gun got clumsy and shot it off. How hard is this to believe? The americans weren't about to shoot and start a battle because they weren't ready to die, and the british were too disciplined to shoot guns off in the middle of talking.

Vin Diesel.... damn i love that site. hes the answer to everything. I think it was the American side because the brits were too well trained to fire without being ordered to.

True, true. He was also probably a sniper.

Or maybe it was just somebody who's fireplace got out of hand and yelled "Fire!" at a really, really bad time. :P

I think I can help narrow the options down a little here, I can categorically say it wasn't me.
