NORTH BRIDGE CHAPTER

SALEM, MASS.



Jtily, J895



TXlvs. 3o^n ID* perkins, Chapter Hegent



The first organized resistance in Massachusetts to armed troops of
Great Britain took place at the North Bridge, Salem, Feb. 26, 1775.

Col. Leslie had been ordered from Boston with part of his regiment
to seize seventeen cannon, which a committee of Provincial Congress
had sent to North Salem to be fitted with carriages. Disembarking at
Marblehead, they marched to Salem. Arrived at the North Bridge,
which must be crossed to reach the cannon, Leslie found the draw
raised and, posted behind it, a company of militia men. They, with
the citizens gathered there, contended that the road was private and not
the King's highway. Leslie declared that he would obey his orders, at
whatever cost A compromise was eflFected by the counsels of Rev.
Thomas Barnard, the soldiers being allowed to cross the bridge on
Leslie's promise to countermarch and return without search for the
cannon.

During the controversy there were some acts of violence between the
parties, and several of the citizens are said to have been slightly wound-
ed by the British while scuttling some boats in which the latter were
endeavoring to cross the river before the draw was lowered. This is
claimed as the first instance of bloodshed in the Revolution. The
afEair is known as " Leslie's Retreat"
