What were the first battles of the Revolutionary War, and when did they occur?
The first battles of the Revolutionary War were the Battles of Lexington and Concord, and they took place on April 19, 1775. (These battles took place in the Massachusetts Bay Colony over a year before the Continental Congress declared independence from Great Britain. They are considered the first battles of the war because the shots were exchanged between colonists and British soldiers. It was also a catalyst for many colonists to support independence.)
Does the following sentence properly use the word "whom": "Whom sent the letter?"
No, this sentence does not use "whom" correctly because "whom" refers to the object of a verb or preposition. When referring to the subject of a sentence, the correct word is "who." A correct way to word this sentence might be, "To whom was the letter sent?"
