The Battles of Concord and Lexington April 19, 1775
By early 1775, the Anishinabe Nation had organized their brave soldiers for military expeditions against the English of Massachusetts. They knew their evil white brethren had now the courage to battle them for control of the America's. Their goals were to defeat the English of the Massachusetts region and bring that region back under Indian control. These two battles were fought on April 19, 1775 near the large English settlement of Boston. Boston was obviously singled out by the Anishinabe Confederations, to either destroy or bring under their control. The number of English American soldiers and English soldiers, who participated in the battles was 3,800 and 1,500 respectively, or 5,300. What the Indians wanted to do at these battles was to somehow get to the supply of European weapons the English had in the Boston region, in order to capture them.
Early on the morning of April 19, 1775, the first shots of the battles occurred, which resulted in the English retreating. After driving the English off, the Indians headed for Concord to capture the weapons and ammunition (gunpowder) of the English. After the large force of Indian soldiers reached Concord, they were attacked by the English, which resulted in a fierce battle and the Indians capturing the weapon and ammunition supplies of the English. After accomplishing their assignment, the Indian soldiers then headed for Boston to lay siege to the unwanted white fortified settlement. The number of English casualties (that includes English Americans and from England) was 335, with 122 killed. Another 58 were classified as missing. I have no idea what the Indian casualties were, but they definitely suffered many casualties. On the next day the Southern Anishinabek surrounded English ammunition storehouses in the Williamsburg region of what is now the State of Virginia, to attempt to capture the ammunition supplies of their white enemies. That event is referred to as The Gunpowder Incident. It occurred on April 20, 1775. It is proof of an organized attempt by the Anishinabe Confederations to capture the badly needed European weapons and ammunition (gunpowder) the Indians needed to fight the whites.
