    Can you answer the following questions?

    The answer, direct from a founder, may surprise you.


    Where did the Revolutionary War break out?
    Not one in a thousand Americans knows this.

    Who fired the first shots on Lexington Common?
    Historians may not know, but we'll be glad to supply at least circumstantial proof.

    Why did the Redcoats break and run at the North Bridge?
    When faced with rude country colonials.

    Did you know that there was no Battle of Bunker Hill?


    It was fought on the next hill over, Breeds Hill.

    "On June 17, 1775, early in the Revolutionary War (1775-83), the British defeated the Americans at the Battle of Bunker Hill in Massachusetts. Despite their loss, the inexperienced colonial forces inflicted significant casualties against the enemy, and the battle provided them with an important confidence boost. Although commonly referred to as the Battle of Bunker Hill, most of the fighting occurred on nearby Breedís Hill."
