It is entirely taken up with eleven very detailed eye-witness accounts of the historic Battle of Lexington & Concord (the latter two carrying over to page 2). These accounts are headed: "Affidavits and Depositions Relative to the Commencement of the late Hostilities in the Province of Massachusetts Bay...". The accounts are simply terrific, but are too voluminous for us to describe so we provide photos of thei... See More
