This is a reproduction of Edward Percy Moran's The First Resistance. The illustration depicts the Colonists confronting British soldiers at Lexington, MA. When the advance guard of nearly 240 British soldiers arrived in Lexington, they found about 70 minutemen awaiting them. The British troops were ordered to seize and destroy military supplies, including weapons and ammunition, that were reportedly stored by colonial militia in the towns of Lexington and Concord. The British intended to assert their authority over the rebellious colonies and suppress any signs of resistance.
