Patriot's Day is very important in Lexington, Massachusetts. The minutemen fought to become a free country. On April 19th, 1776, at one o'clock in the morning Paul Revere rode through Lexington yelling," The British are coming! The British are coming!!!" The minutemen were ready minutes after. Then the shot rang round the world. The British attacked and won the battle. The next day the minutemen gathered up more men and ambushed the British driving them back to their ships. God Bless America!
