MPAA Rating:

The morning invoked by the title of this made-for-TV drama is April 19, 1775. On that day, the “shot heard ’round the world” was fired, signalling the start of the American Revolution. Departing from known history, novelist Howard Fast proposes that the skirmish between the Colonial militia and the British troops on Concord Green, Massachusetts, was precipitated by fervent American patriot Solomon Chandler. Later, Chandler commandeered guerilla raids against the British, activities which involved the film’s main protagonist, 15-year-old Adam Cooper. Tommy Lee Jones, Robert Urich and Susan Blakely co-star in this Hallmark Hall of Fame presentation, originally telecast April 24, 1988.
