A List of the names of the provincials who were killed and wounded in the late engagement with his majesty's troops at Concord, April 19, 1775...
by (Revolutionary War).
[Boston? : s.n., reprinted July, 1804.] Folio, 14 3/4 x 4 1/2 ins. with good margins. Text within black mourning bars. Broadside matted, two minor flaws not affecting text, generally in very good condition. “The shot heard round the world”. This broadside commemorates the militiamen who were wounded or killed at the first opening hostilities between the British troops and the American revolutionaries. Notably it includes Prince Estabrook (printed “Prince Easterbrooks a Negro man”) who was wounded. “He was honored in 2008 by the city of Lexington, MA with a monument erected in front of Buckman Tavern as being the first black combatant of the American Revolution and for representing the thousands of slaves who fought for their country even though their own freedom was not afforded to their people until almost a hundred years later.” The first printing of this broadside is distinguished by the headpiece being a woodcut skull and crossbones; the reprint has a coffin and urn. It would seem to be a legendary rarity in American history. We can only locate two copies sold in the last 100 years and one or possibly two copies in Institutions (Mass. Hist. Soc. and possibly another at AAS) -- this re-issue in type facsimile (dated by the AAS from the Streeter copy) also seems to be very scarce. (Inventory #: 107284)
