In the spring of 1775, the Massachusetts colony is in open rebellion against Great Britain. In April, a bloody clash at Lexington and Concord sends the redcoats reeling. Twenty year-old Lieutenant Arthur Thornridge sets sail from Ireland to tangle with events which will shape the course of history. In Boston, a hotbed of discontent, he finds irritable colonists making life difficult for the soldiers. While the authorities attempt to keep a tenuous peace in the city, a deadly plot is being hatched against the lives of the British. Racing against time, Thornridge embarks on a dangerous mission to get to the heart of the conspiracy as the countryside swarms with enemy militiamen. Meanwhile, rebel and redcoat prepare for a fateful showdown on an eminence overlooking the city called Bunker Hill.
