I will elaborate & will post my investigation, as I did here at ELU.Just khổng lồ cut the long story short, for this specific case: "on" is the correct preposition and "in" is the incorrect one."The morning of" functions as an adjectival phrase clarifying the specific time và date "on March 5". "On" is used because it belongs to lớn the date here, specific part of the day.The normal language constructions would be:on + date (with the year or without it) or day of the weekin + morning, afternoon, evening (in the morning, in the evening)But, when we talk about a specific morning, afternoon, or when we describe the part of the day it should be used with on:on the morning of ,You can"t say "I will see you on the morning" - it"s incorrect.here"s the reference for more examples: http://dictionary.cambridge.org/grammar/british-grammar/at-on-and-in-time In or on? We use in with morning, afternoon, evening & night, but we use on when we talk about a specific morning, afternoon, etc., or when we describe the part of the day.
