    Why: The Battle of Lexington and Concord was made up of two battles that began on April 18th, 1775. British troops were sent to Concord to capture John Hancock and Samuel Adams, but both men had been warned about the British attack.

So when the British came in to take and attack the Rebels, the minutemen were already expecting them.
