The Colonists had known of the planned confiscation for weeks in advance, and were alerted by Paul Revere that the hour was nigh. Having waited through the night at the Buckman Tavern, just across from the Lexington Green, the soldiers were prepared when the British arrived at the break of dawn.
The Tavern of colonial times was a central meeting point and information exchange post for the town. The Buckman Tavern served as a central meeting point for the plotting of the resistance. I highly recommend the tour, which at $5 is an incredible bargain.
