The next morning, Dr. Warren gives Johnny the latest news. Lexington fell quickly to British forces––it was a battle between 700 British soldiers and 70 rebels. Most of the rebels fled when they realized they were outnumbered. Although few rebels were killed, this is a major event because it is the first bloodshed of the American Revolution. The British soldiers have moved on to Concord to try to take rebel supplies there.
