Lexington and Concord
By Cathy Pearl

1     The colonists were getting ready for war. Each colony started a militia. The militias started to train. They needed to learn how to fight. They were getting ready to fight a war. The militia would be fighting sooner than they thought.
2     The colonists started to gather weapons. They put these weapons in Concord. Concord was about twenty miles from Boston, Massachusetts. The colony began to train people to fight. The people were called minutemen. They were called this because they were ready to fight in a minute.
3     England sent more troops to Boston. Soon, there were four thousand troops in the city. An English general heard about the weapons. He decided to surprise the colonists. He sent seven hundred troops to Concord. They were to destroy the weapons.
