The Battle of Lexington and Concord on April 19, 1775 was the first battle of the American Revolutionary War and was described as "the shot heard round the world." About 900 British Army regulars were ordered to capture military supplies stored by the Massachusetts Militia at Concord. Weeks before this expedition, the American Patriots had acted on good intelligence by moving these supplies to safety. The Patriots had also received details of the British plans on the night before the battle.
The first shots were fired at Lexington during the British Army's advance, resulting in a skirmish victory over the Lexington Militia. Things improved for the Patriots at Concord's North Bridge, where three companies of the King's troops broke ranks and fled from the "Minutemen" after a battle in open territory.
Our Concord candlestick is representative of candlesticks commonly found in the area at the time of the Revolution.
