An American colonial militia called the Minutemen, due to the fact they claimed they could prepare themselves to fight in a minute.

It was the second battle of the beginning of the American Revolution, following a colonial loss at Lexington, where the militia had met the redcoats on their way to Concord from Boston in the first place.
