About the stamp: The stamp was issued as the third of a set of three commemoratives to celebrate the sesquicentennial of the Battles of Lexington and Concord, Massachusetts, the first skirmish of the Revolutionary War. On April 19, 1775, after leaving 8 Americans dead at Lexington, British troops marched on to Concord where they suffered 14 casualties at the hands of the Minutemen. With American forces swelling, the British troops were repelled at Concord's North Bridge, and they retreated, continually harassed, back to Boston. facsimile day Covers An actual-size reproduction of a rare First Day Cover for philatelic and educational purposes by FLEETWOOD, Cheyenne, Wyoming 82008 © 1975
