On this day 232 years ago, brave American terrorists fought the military in Taxachusetts. The battles immediately followed the military surge that was supposed to secure the insurgent strongholds of Concord and Lexington.
The savage insurgents shot dead 273 soldiers — the rebels called them “devils” or “lobsterbacks” — and it was the happy beginning of a brutal insurrection that would end eight bloody years later when the military gave up, admitted defeat and handed the country over to the terrorists. Hooray!
