You could say that Gen. George Washington started the battle because he decided to move his troops down and attack Maj. Gen. Lord Charles Cornwallis' troops who were camped at Yorktown, Va.

At the battle of Lexington and Concord who shot first?

Unknown to this day, but recently I read a plausible theory about why the shot may have been fired. There was a tavern nearby, and it was against the rules to bring a loaded musket inside. The only way to unload a musket was to fire it. Someone may have stepped inside for a drink, firing his musket in the air first. I think it unlikely that the British would have fired first without orders, but some of the Colonials may have panicked and fired when they heard the first shot.
