Sam lives with his mother and father on a farm in Lexington, Massachusetts. America is still a British colony, but the people are unhappy. One day, Sam sees British soldiers in Boston trying to keep order. "They want to keep us from being too strong." his father tells him. One spring night, Sam is woken by the church bells. The British soldiers are marching to Concord where the colonists have hidden weapons. Sam goes with his father and the minutemen, hoping to hold back the British. At their first encounter, Sam's best friend is injured. Learning to stay hidden, the minutemen's second encounter with the British drives them off.

Experience the start of the American Revolution through a young boy's eyes.
