The phrase shot heard round the world has come to stand for many different things, but in The Shot Heard Round The World Boxed Set, it is a reference to one event, to the first thing that ever had the title. The first shot in the American Revolution. The actual phrase shot heard round the world is taken from Ralph Waldo Emerson, a famed poet who wrote a verse about the American Revolution. The actual line can be found in the first stanza of his poem, Concord Hymn. It refers to the first shot fired in the American Revolution, which dates to 1775, and was fired during a stand-off between British forces and the local militia that was stated in Lexington, Massachusetts. Inevitably, tensions arose and the situation escalated, until it became known, today, as the Battles of Lexington and Concord.
