DAY OF GLORY

This hour by hour report of the day in April, 1775, that saw the beginning of the fighting in the American Revolution has a certain holding urgency as it follows now one side, now the other. Twenty-four chapters, running from the evening of one day to the evening of the next, open with the activities of young Solomon Brown as he goes on an errand for his father from Lexington to Boston. In the city he is asked to carry a message to some of the leaders, in hiding outside town, and the action is an opening for a fast moving account of the men on both sides-Adams, Warren, Revere, Gage- and the Jockeying for position on the fateful night and day. Background material is well supplied too in conversation, and as events move to the climax of the first battles, the combination of fact and suspense is terse and succinct.
