Storyline

Shot on location in Nova Scotia, the film relates the true story of a remarkable woman, whose husband, a patriot leader, was kidnapped from their home by a band of Tories -- Americans loyal to the King of England. Left to fend for herself and their children as she sought her husband's release, Mary Silliman's story presents the War for Independence in a way that is fresh and engaging to a modern audience. Mary Silliman's War was produced by Heritage Films, under the auspices of The Institute for Early American History in Colonial Williamsburg, VA. It is based on the biography by Richard and Joy Day Buel, The Way of Duty (Norton, 1984). Written by Anonymous

A historically accurate Revolutionary War film
19 April 2001 | by (Illinois) – See all my reviews

A very historically accurate and interesting film for those wishing to see the REAL side of the Revolutionary War, not the glamorized Patriot version. It shows the struggles of the women, and the average people (both loyalists and patriots). This isn't rock 'em sock 'em action, so not a popcorn movie, but would be a useful tool for educators.
