“Brothers in Arms” Two Brothers in the Colonial Militia, 1775

Families across the Colonies sent their sons to war in the American Revolution. Many of these were brothers who would fight side-by-side in some of the most crucial battles of the war. Some remained home to work the farm, protect the family, and serve in the militias and “ranger” units to defend the frontier from the repeated attacks of British-allied Indian tribes. Serving as militiamen, these two brothers are mustered on the common area adjacent to the Buckman Tavern, Lexington, Massachusetts in the early morning hours of 19 April 1775 to await the oncoming Redcoats. George Washington noted in his diary that on this date “the first blood was spilt in the dispute with Great Britain.”
