Excerpt from The First Stroke: Lexington, Concord, and the Beginning of the American Revolution

If Captain Parker and his men had any plan, it was to keep as far away as possible from the Concord road. They knew that Con cord was the British column's destination, and earlier in the evening, when the first alarm was brought to Lexington by riders from Boston, they had been told the British numbered between and men. Captain Parker and his men had conferred and decided not to meddle or make with [the] Regular troops.
