ABSTRACT
The article relates a little known street fight that occurred hours after the encounter between the British forces and American rebels at Lexington and Concord in Massachusetts during the American Revolutionary War. The street fight occurred in Menotomy, or what is now known as Arlington, Massachusetts, in 1755. The fight consisted of a series of ambushes by American rebels on British soldiers to avenge the deaths of those who were killed in Lexington, the fiercest of which occurred inside the house of one of Menotomy's residents, the Russell House.
