What was the state where the Revolutionary War began?

The Revolutionary War was said to begin in Massachusetts. Specifically, it began when a large group of redcoats went on march to Concord, to seize colonial gunpowder stores, and arrest Samuel Adams and John Hancock. The redcoats were met by a small militia in the village green of Lexington, en route to Concord. These militiamen were easily beaten, but gave the people of Concrod time to prepare for the redcoats' arrival. The redcoats were driven to retreat, and suffered a large number of casualties as they fled back to Boston.
