We begin where we left off with the previous episode - the British march to Lexington and Concord. After defeating the militia on the village green of Lexington, the British continued their march to Concord. Failing to find a great deal of munitions, the militia struck back. As the British began their retreat back to Boston, their column was met with constant sniping from local militia all the way back to the city. News spread quickly through the colonies, galvanizing a movement toward revolution. With the creation of the Continental Army and the appointment of George Washington as its leader, war had begun.

In the spring of 1775, tensions between the British and Colonists had risen to a fever pitch. As the inhabitants of Boston grew restive over British restrictions, General Thomas Gage was left with few choices. While not wanting to spark an insurrection, he chose to remove munitions that could be used against the British soldiers. On a raid to Concord, they were met by American militia on the village green of Lexington. Shots were fired. An insurrection had begun.
