And now a report from the rude bridge

J.L. Bell brings us an account of the fighting at the Old North Bridge by Amos Baker of Lincoln:

There were two British soldiers killed at the bridge. I saw them when I went over the bridge, lying close together, side by side, dead.

Joshua Brooks, of Lincoln, was at the bridge and was struck with a ball that cut through his hat, and drew blood on his forehead, and it looked as if it was cut with a knife; and we concluded they were firing jackknives.
