What were the causes and outcomes of the battles at Lexington and Concord?

During the American Revolutionary Period, actions by both the American Patriots and the British authorities contributed to the confrontations that occurred at Lexington and Concord on April 19, 1775. On the British side, the aggressive march into the Massachusetts countryside, with the goal of searching for and destroying hidden arms along with orders to arrest key revolutionary leaders, was a primary cause of the confrontations. On the Patriot side, defiant unwillingness to stand aside or watch passively as the British aggression occurred, not to overlook their prior storing of arms in countryside hiding-places, was yet another primary cause of the 'shot heard around the world' that was fired that day.
