A brief comment follows,
The Battles of Lexington and Concord were the first military engagements of the American Revolutionary War. The battles were fought on April 19, 1775 in Middlesex County, Province of Massachusetts Bay, within the towns of Lexington, Concord, Lincoln, Menotomy (present-day Arlington), and Cambridge. They marked the outbreak of armed conflict between the Kingdom of Great Britain and its thirteen colonies in America.
In late 1774, Colonial leaders adopted the Suffolk Resolves in resistance to the alterations made to the Massachusetts colonial government by the British parliament following the Boston Tea Party. The colonial assembly responded by forming a Patriot provisional government known as the Massachusetts Provincial Congress and calling for local militias to train for possible hostilities. The Colonial government exercised effective control of the colony outside of British-controlled Boston. In response, the British government in February 1775 declared Massachusetts to be in a state of rebellion.
About 700 British Army regulars in Boston, under Lieutenant Colonel Francis Smith, were given secret orders to capture and destroy Colonial military supplies reportedly stored by the Massachusetts militia at Concord. Through effective intelligencegathering, Patriot leaders had received word weeks before the expedition that their supplies might be at risk and had moved most of them to other locations. On the night before the battle, warning of the British expedition had been rapidly sent from Boston to militias in the area by several riders, including Paul Revere and Samuel Prescott, with information about British plans. The initial mode of the Army’s arrival by water was signaled from the Old North Church in Boston to Charlestown using lanterns to communicate “one if by land, two if by sea”.
The first shots were fired just as the sun was rising at Lexington. Eight militiamen were killed, including Ensign Robert Munroe, their third in command. The British suffered only one casualty. The militia were outnumbered and fell back, and the regulars proceeded on to Concord, where they broke apart into companies to search for the supplies. At the North Bridge in Concord, approximately 400 militiamen engaged 100 regulars from three companies of the King’s troops at about 11:00am, resulting in casualties on both sides. The outnumbered regulars fell back from the bridge and rejoined the main body of British forces in Concord.
The British forces began their return march to Boston after completing their search for military supplies, and more militiamen continued to arrive from neighboring towns. Gunfire erupted again between the two sides and continued throughout the day as the regulars marched back towards Boston. Upon returning to Lexington, Lt. Col. Smith’s expedition was rescued by reinforcements under Brigadier General Hugh Percy, a future duke of Northumberland styled at this time by the courtesy titleEarl Percy. The combined force of about 1,700 men marched back to Boston under heavy fire in a tactical withdrawal and eventually reached the safety of Charlestown. The accumulated militias then blockaded the narrow land accesses to Charlestown and Boston, starting the Siege of Boston.
It is worth noting, again, for the benefit of wannabe tyrants and the Deep State assholes who we currently have under siege at he moment, that the men who came to the aid of our fledgling country and who fought and died in these battles on our behalf were not professional soldiers. They were farmers and small town folk.
They put it all on the line and in the end, kicked the ass of the most powerful military on the planet at that time. Not alone by any stretch of the imagination, they had plenty of help.
The current back channel conflict going on right now with the Deep State has some similarities and some very unique attributes due to the advanced technology involved.
There is one constant here though. There are now MILLIONS of us common men who would drop everything and come to the aid of our country if a serious threat was posed to hearth and home.
You can take that to the bank.
There won’t be any single shot muskets pointing down range next time.
We have more weapons than all of the major armies of the entire world combined.
We are pissed off and aching for a legitimate target.
You will want to bring a lunch and a lot of body bags.
There is nowhere to hide anymore.
We will have help waiting.
If I judge the current mood of many of my fellow countrymen at the moment correctly, there will be no stopping until the last motherfucker who poses a threat is dead.
That will include the Commie bastards who are currently trying to subvert our government and our very lives at the moment.
All y’all is going to keep fucking around and find out.
The Hard Way.
To those who are currently fanning the flames of another Civil War here in these United States?
Be careful what you wish for.
You might just get it.
