Why did the colonial troops find that the European style of fighting was not the most effective against the British?
Not only was the British Army one of the world's most well-trained armies at the time, but they often had the advantage of numerical superiority. Washington's defeat at the Battle of Trenton showed this weakness. In later conflicts, the colonials adopted many tactics of skirmishing and guerrilla warfare that had been effective in the French and Indian War.

Who attacked who at Lexington?
No one knows who fired the first shot. Six companies of British infantry marched into Lexington at dawn, where they found the town militia in formation on Lexington Common. A British officer ordered the militia to lay down their guns, which they did not do. Both the Captain leading the militia and the Major in charge of the British told their men to fire, but their orders were not heard in the noise and confusion. Some of the British troops rode into the Common to surround and disarm the militia. A shot was fired and the battle was started. Some colonials said the British fired first; some of the British soldiers said a colonial fired first; most on both sides admitted that they did not know.
