CONFLICT IN MASSACHUSETTS April 20, 1775 Boston (AP)--Government forces sustained heavy casualties today in a series of armed clashes with insurgent forces throughout the Massachusetts countryside. According to an army spokesman, a force of 700 soldiers under General Gage's command were deployed to secure an arms depot and terrorist leaders Sam Adams and John Hancock of the "Sons of Liberty". A resistance group calling itself the "Lexington Minutemen", alerted by signals from a nearby church, engaged Gage's soldiers on Lexington Green but was quickly dispersed. The arms cache was secured, but the whereabouts of Adams and Hancock are still unknown. In his daily briefing, General Gage said that he was pleased with the outcome of today's operations and expressed his opinion that further armed conflict would be minimal.
