This historical featurette focuses on Caesar Rodney of Delaware, who cast the deciding vote so that the Declaration of Independence was adopted in 1776. Written by

I'm apparently a poor student of American history as I had absolutely no clue who Caesar Rodney was prior to seeing this short film. The short's about the days leading up to the signing of the Declaration of Independence. The fate of the nation hangs on a deadlocked vote about whether to pass the Declaration or not. Apparently it's all down to one vote and that man, Caesar Rodney, isn't present to vote. From this we get the most dramatic parts of the short as Rodney rides likes the dickens, fighting off one obstacle after another, to arrive just in time to cast the deciding vote. It's all very Hollywood but also fun. I don't need to read up on the events depicted here to know it's loosely adapted from the real events. But, as I've always said, I don't watch movies to be educated; I watch to be entertained. This Technicolor short film is enjoyable and fun. For anything more, pick up a history book.
