    At Meriam's Corner the colonists had fired first. Governor John Brooks later told a writer that he had ordered his man to fire and they were the ones to begin firing upon the British soldiers.

    Who Shot First?
    I think the Ccolonists shot first. They had the advantage by being at the top of the hill, because the British were at the bottom, they had a smaller advantage to fire. The British didn't want to waste their gunpowder so they didn't want to shoot until they had a good range. The colonists also had a better aim to shoot at. Tons of British soldiers were squished in, marching for numerous miles, and hungry tired and cold and grumpy. All they wanted to do eat and be warm, so it was unlikely that they wanted to fire first and declare a battle.

    Who Shot first
    I think the british shot first, because at the north bridge, theres alot of detail that the british shot at the colonists first. Many of british soldiers were also people who dont mess around with BS. The colonists just shot back, because of the british shooting first.

    who shot first
    i think that neither the British or the colonists shot first but i do think that the British were the first to respond. As soon as the unknown gunshot was fired the British started blasting without no thought of who just fired.

    Who Shot First ?
    I believe that neither side shot first in Lexingtion, but I do think that the British were the first to respond to the sound of the unknown gunshot. I think so because in the letter of a private soldier he talks about how they charged and then shot due to the fact that they heard a gunshot. But the colonists said they did not fire first.
    But when it comes to the battle at Concord I believe the colonists shot first because they had the clear advantage over the British and the British wouldn't want to purposefully put all of their men in danger.

    Who Shot First?
    I believe that the British shot first because there were more accounts saying that the British shot firs. Also we learned that the British went out there that morning to attack the colonists so they would have most likely shot first.

    Who Shot First?
    Damandeep Singh

    I think the British shot first because even though nobody saw who shot first, the witnesses the British had out numbered the Minute Man at the beginning (even before the other Min. Man from other towns found out about the British reaching Concord). So the British fired seeing weapons in the hands of the Min. Man and that's both sides really started shooting at each other.

    Who Shot First?
    I think the British shot first at the colonists. The colonists knew they were outnumbered so I don't think they would've shot at the British. Plus the British were more trained and equip than the colonists as well. The colonists clearly state who shot first in their accounts. The British were all around more powerful so I think that they were the ones who shot out first
