  • Endicott, Charles M.:  Account Of Leslie's Retreat At The North Bridge, On Sunday, Feb'y 26, 1775.  Salem, Mass.: Wm. Ives And Geo. W. Pease, 1856. First Edition. Good in original wraps over a stab-sewn binding. The front and rear wrappers are heavily chipped around their edges and loose from the text block. The sewing thread has parted allowing the individual pages freedom of movement. The verso of the front wrapper provides errata information for page 1 of the text. 47 pages of text which detail the first, near violent, but non-bloody encounter between a regiment of British troops and townspeople from Salem and many surrounding towns. The British were under the command of Lieutenant-Colonel Alexander Leslie whose orders from General Gage were to take the cannon which had been acquired and were being prepared to thwart any British invasion. When Leslie and his 240 men arrived in Salem they were met by an armed and angry crowd. Leslie was prevented from crossing the North River as the townspeople, under the command of Colonel David Mason of the Massachusetts Committee of Public Safety, raised half the drawbridge over the river. Leslie threatened ordering his men to open fire on the men guarding the open bridge. He was advised by locals not to do so as the British would be mowed down to the last man by the townsfolk who surrounded his troops. Foiled in his efforts to capture the cannon, Leslie returned to Boston thus ending the first openly hostile encounter of the American Revolution. It was two months later that the first shots of the Revolution occurred at Concord and Lexington. This account originally appeared in volume 1 of Massachusetts Proceedings in 1856. This copy is an offprint of that account, but given a different title. (Gephart, 5783; Sabin, 22559) There are no book auction records for this title in the past 25 years. This is the original document, not a facsimile, not a print-on-demand creation.
