You have done quite an amazing job of a first person view of this event without a redundance of I's.
I was glad to see a great job on the timeline of events. This was a very important battle in our American History. The shot heard round the world. I wish more people would write on their history regardless of American or not. It would definitely be insightful and a good read. Great job.
There were a couple of spelling mistakes....you have ..threatened lives, AMD (should be and) families starin should be staring (though the phonetic way of speaking it you have done) Also, the word Brittish should be British, and then at the end if I am not wrong myself it should be neither not niether.
