238 British troops arrived in Lexington at about 4:30am. They were met by local militiamen, about 70 in all, who are ordered to stand their ground, resist surrendering their arms, and to allow the Regulars (British army) to pass. In the moment, a shot rang out and all hell broke loose for about 40 seconds leaving 8 Colonists killed and 9 wounded. The Regulars suffer one loss.

Location of the shot heard around the world?

The "shot heard round the world" was fired at Lexington.


Why was it called the shot heard round the world?

The "shot heard 'round the world" was the first shot of the American Revolution, at the battles of Lexington and Concord, on April 19, 1775. The colonists first exchanged shots at Lexington. But it was later in the day that Minutemen, alerted by Paul Revere and others, attacked and defeated British soldiers at Concord, beginning open conflict with the British.---The "shot heard round the world" is a phrase from Ralph Waldo Emerson's "Concord Hymn" written in 1837:By the rude bridge that arched the flood,Their flag to April's breeze unfurled;Here once the embattled farmers stood,And fired the shot heard 'round the world.The poem refers to the beginning of the American Revolutionary War and the "shot heard round the world," was the Battle of Lexington and Concord, considered to be the first open conflict in the war. The shots fired there were the beginning of a war that would so drastically change the future of the world (with the eventual creation of the United States), that the world could almost hear it.


What was the shot heard around the world and why was it important?

This is, of course, metaphorical. A shot is not literally going to be heard around the world, but it can set in motion events of global importance. When the American Colonies declared it was time for England to give America her independence. England was not going to do it without a fight. The American Revolutionary War, was the inspiration of other countries around the world, who wanted freedom and independence also. When the guns were fired that began the first battle of the American Revolutionary War, it became known by the expression for "The shot heard around the world."


What was considered the first battle of the American Revolution also the shot heard round the world was fired here?

What did Emerson mean when he called the first shot of the American Revolution the shot heard round the world?

Simply put, the first shot fired in the American Revolution, described as the "shot heard round the world" , by Mr. Emerson? Metaphorically speaking, the shot would cause all the world to realize that a new era was beginning at this point in history. The first of the New World colonies to throw off the not so symbolic "yoke of oppression" mounted upon them by the Old World counties to which they were attached to or hailed from. The "shot heard round the world" would cause all tyrannical nations to sit up and pay heed to this fact. The colonies were in fact, countries unto themselves, and capable and willing to fight for the right of self government. A whole new era in history began at this point in time......BANG! as Emerson so eloquently stated, "We are off and running".
