April 19, 1775: The Shot Heard Round the World
The American Dead
Home | The American Dead | The British Dead | Other Notable Personalities | Artifacts of the Day | Another April 19 | Another "Shot..." | About Me and This Site
The fifty Americans who were killed or mortally wounded on April 19, 1775.  In the case of nine individuals, memorial sites are listed in lieu of unknown final resting places.  After each town name, the source of information for that town is given credit.  This site would be sorely incomplete without their assistance; however, I claim all errors as my own.
