Storyline

Benjamin Franklin enlists the help of young people to record the happenings leading up to and during the Revolution for his newspaper the Pennsylvania Gazette. First, there is a James Hiller, a patriot who tends to act before he thinks and is, at times, too quick a judge in his search for American heroes. Next is Henri, a French orphan who's only quest is for food. Lastly, a young woman named Sarah Phillips joins the team; the daughter of an ex-English general with strong views opposing slavery. Together, they travel the colonies witnessing the sacrifices made for freedom. Written by Max Vaughn

Goofs

From August through September, the characters are in two places at the exact same time. James and Henri are present to witness LaFayette's courage at Brandywine on 11 September 1777, yet are also with General Gates' American army at Saratoga (and James is a prisoner of the British during that Saratoga episode at the same time he's able to witness Brandywine).

Quotes

Sarah Phillips: A sea monster in New York harbor? Sir that is most unlikely.
Henri LeFevre: Maybe not thrilled.

Liberty Kids IS available!
10 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For those of you that love Liberty Kids as much as we do, here is some wonderful news! There is an online education streaming video provider that has 40 of the Liberty Kids episodes. There are two places to go: www.unitedstreaming.com or www.cosmeo.com. They both offer the same videos but united streaming is created more for schools/teachers and cosmeo more for home use. Cosmeo is about $10/month or $99/year. We receive this free through our state education agency and use it ALL the time! We homeschool and use the videos, Liberty Kids included, in our teaching day all the time. I highly recommend the service! (And if you're interested, they also have CyberChase, My America, Dear Diary and Royal Diaries as well. My daughter never seems to get tired of the Magic Schoolbus videos as well. I only wish they also had the Schoolhouse Rock videos. :-)
