Robert Urich's film “April Morning” and Recommended to Commemorate April 19th, 1775.

What happened on this day in history (April 19th) should be known by every American. Sadly it is not.

The Ancestral Marketing Institute recommends to history teachers and parents the new Family Forest software and the Hallmark film, “April Morning” as two excellent aides to remind Americans of this important day in history – when 227 years ago "the shot heard ‘round the world" was fired.

“This day marks the beginning of America’s long struggle to secure the freedoms and liberty we cherish Our goal is to have our nation’s history teachers share with their students what happened on April 19th 1775”, says Thomas E. Nocera of the Ancestral Marketing Institute. “Keeping these colorful events of our past alive for our children, and for future generations, is every patriotic American’s responsibility, especially for parents and teachers”, Nocera said today.

"One new and exciting way to bring history to life for this computer savvy generation is through 's "People-Centered Approach To History", suggests Nocera. “By exploring the latest Family Forest CD-ROM title, which now spans over 2000 years, one discovers America’s History through the individuals and families that created it."

“Teaching ourselves and our children to look at things differently can be an extremely mind-broadening experience" said Sandy Berger of AARP and

Another way to capture the interest of both children and adults is through motion pictures. “We highly recommend a film co-produced by Hallmark's Robert Halmi, Jr. and MGM's Samuel Goldwyn Jr. titled "April Morning", which stars the late Robert Urich and Tommy Lee Jones.

“April Morning” tells the story of the Lexington Alarm. “April Morning” is an excellent fictional rendition of a day in the life of some of the families living in and near Lexington and Concord, Mass. whose lives were changed by the events of April 19th 1775.” says Bruce Harrison, the President of Millisecond Publishing Company, Inc. and visionary behind the Family Forest project.

Let us not allow these significant historic events of America’s heritage, be forgotten. Something everyone can do today to keep those events alive for generations yet to come is to visit the Family Forest Archive page at and read some of the stories that are part of America’s history.
