Road to Revolution Unit Test with Answer Key

* Please note: The location of the "Shot Heard 'Round the World" is disputed. After my own research and talking to character interpreters, I decided to refer to the "Shot Heard "Round the World" as the shot that occurred at Concord's North Bridge.
The phrase is originally from the opening stanza of Ralph Waldo Emerson's "Concord Hymn" (1837), and referred to as the first shot of the American Revolution.
