The story of the Battle of Lexington and Concord, which occurred on April 19, 1775, was when the redcoats made their first appearance.

The redcoats were members of the British Army, and the uniform they were issued was given that title. King George III, had plenty of money to see that his military had the best, when it came to their uniforms.

The minutemen were Americans who formed a troop, and their goal was to be ready to fight in a minutes notice, should the British cause trouble. On that day of April 19, 1775, the redcoats marched into the area. They seemed to be in a happy and carefree state of mind.

The minutemen attacked. About 90 Americans were killed or wounded, and about 200 British troops were killed or wounded. The American Revolutionary War had officially begun.
