American Revolutionary War Soldier. He was killed on the first day of the American Revolution, one of fifty Americans either killed or mortally wounded on that day. At the North Bridge in Concord, after proclaiming "I haven't a man that is afraid to go!", he marched his Acton Minute Men to the front of the American forces to face the British army. His heart was pierced by a musket ball. He was the son of Ezekiel and Mary (Gibson) Davis, and married Hannah Brown on 24 October, 1764, in Acton, Massachusetts.
