Storyline

Passing over the intervening years between Washington's marriage in 1759 we come to the meeting of a General Congress, at Philadelphia, where the foundations were laid for our mighty nation. Congress assembled in Carpenter's Hall, where Patrick Henry made his famous speech, the keynote of American independence. The spirit of revolt against English oppression was growing in America, while in England the belief was that the appearance of an English army would surely subdue the Colonists. Washington offered to accept the command of an army should occasion require it. Further and more stringent measures were adopted in Parliament and preparations for hostilities began at once.

Evident expense and time spent upon its production
21 October 2014 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

In this the part of Washington is taken by an actor of international fame and who bore the honors of the part to perfection. Even in the minutest details it is evident that the Vitagraph Company has spread itself to make this film historically accurate and pictorially perfect. The toning of the various scenes is tastefully done, and in one scene a double tone effect is produced which has almost the effect of hand coloring. It is doubtful if the demand for a historical subject will bring to the Vitagraph Company sufficient extra orders for this film to warrant the evident expense and time that were spent upon its production. We hope that it will meet with the demand that it deserves, but if disappointed it will at least serve to well advertise the fact that the Vitagraph Company is in the front rank of producers, and that nothing is beyond their ambition or powers to perform. - The Moving Picture World, June 26, 1909
