Both Sides
25 April 2005 | by (Boston, MA) – See all my reviews

It is hard not to picture William Daniels when thinking about John Adams. With his timeless performance in 1776, Daniels is forever remembered as the hard hitting John Adams in the 70's musical. The American Revolution series tells the entire event known to many as the American Fight for Independence. From the French and Indian War to the start of a new nation with the United States of America, the series captures the history for its audience. The series also mentions different sides to the war and the reasons why America wanted its independence. While history is written by the winners, it is still nice to see other sides to the event with other opinions. Cliff Robertson and Rick Schroder also attach their voices to the Revolution. This is a wonderful series with great production value. If any, this is an important and one of the better series on the Revolution to watch.
