On the eve of the American Revolution, one battle changes a boy's life—and a nation's history—forever On April 18, 1775, musket shots ring out over Lexington, Massachusetts. As the sun rises over the battlefield, fifteen-year-old Adam Cooper stands among the outmatched patriots, facing a line of British troops. Determined to defend his home and prove his worth to his disapproving father, Cooper is about to embark on the most significant day of his lifetime. The Battle of Lexington and Concord will be the starting point of the American Revolution—and the moment that Cooper becomes a man.   Sweeping in scope and masterful in execution, April Morning is a classic of American literature and an unforgettable story of one community's fateful struggle for freedom.   This ebook features an illustrated biography of Howard Fast including rare photos from the author's estate.
