From the tower of the Old North Church where Robert Newman gave the signal that the British were coming, host Dave Stotts recalls the beginnings of the American Revolution. Dave visits Lexington Green and reviews the history of the "shot heard around the world," and at Old North Bridge, Concorde, the American success and British retreat. At Bunker Hill, Dave provides a detailed account of the fighting and causalities in a conflict where the Americans established themselves as a solid fighting force.
