At Lexington the Redcoats got a surprise. 70 minutemen awaited their arrival. Unfortunately the British force was too strong and defeated them killing 8 Patriots. Although while they tried to destroy the Patriots ammo the Patriots gathered more men and were able to defeat the Redcoats. “Stand your ground… if they mean to have a war, let it begin here!!” – Captain John Parker
At Bunker Hill the British army won… but not without loosing 1,000 soldiers first. The Patriots ran out of ammo, but still put up a fight.
The British won the battle. Its important because they retreated!!
The colonist won!! Its important that the colonist won because no one thought that they would win but they did!!!!!!!!
In October 1777 General Burgoyne surrendered the British Army.
All I can say is that… WE WON!!! BEAT THAT BRITISH!! YAHOO!!!
