The Red Coats Are Coming

Lexington and Concord
On 19 April 1775, at Lexington and Concord, Massachusetts, a column of British soldiers marched to the countryside to collect arms and munitions from the Patriot Militia. The "Red Coats" marched in regimental formation down the main roads towards Lexington and Concord. As the British entered the village they were met by a small but very effect band of men from neighboring towns in Massachusetts. Below are the (17) seventeen Kidder's that responded to the alarm at Lexington and Concord.
Town of Tewksbury --- Daniel, Josiah, Jeremiah, Jeremiah
Town of Billerica --- Isaac, Samuel, William
Town of Sutton --- Francis, John
Town of Chelmsford --- James, Thomas
Town of Dudley --- Benjamin, Samuel
Town of New Marlborough --- John
Town of Littleton --- Francis
