Storyline

This short-lived series tried to apply the ideals of the '60s youth culture to the American Revolution. Jeremy Larkin, Isak Poole, Henry Abington and Elizabeth Coates were members of "the Yankee Doodle Society", a rebel group based in Chester, Pennsylvania in 1777. Reporting directly to General Lafayette, the team operated as spies behind British lines. Jeremy was the son of Chester's Tory mayor, who hid his political ideas behind a facade of disinterested pacifism. Elizabeth was a liberated woman ahead of her time and Isak was an ex-slave. The brains of the group was Henry, a big fan of Benjamin Franklin (whom he resembled), and always able to invent whatever device or scheme the group needed to finish their missions.

nice show
30 April 2005 | by (washington state) – See all my reviews

I remember watching this show when it originally aired and later when it was show on one of the cable stations--TVLand maybe? I can't remember.

I was a fan of both Rick Ely and Lou Gosset, Jr.

It was interesting seeing events that I'd learned about in history class get a new and different look through the eyes of young people in the 1700's. And there was always a bit a factual trivia at the end of every show.

My favorite episode was the one about the Liberty Bell and I also remember one about Patrick Henry. The wove actually history into the episodes very well.
