Have you ever wondered who fired “the shot heard round the world” that fateful morning of April 19, 1775? Who were those brave men who stood against the best-trained army in the world? This book contains Jonas Clark’s Sermon on the one-year anniversary and his eyewitness narrative of those events. None other but Jonas Clark could give such an accounting, for he was the pastor of those “embattled farmers” who stood their ground. Clark is herein giving an honest and accurate accounting of the Battle of Lexington. He is also giving testimony of the events of April 19 and answers the great question, “Who fired the first shot?” -Excerpted from the introduction by Rev. Christopher Hoops
