Probably about as true as stories about the cherry tree and wooden teeth!
1 April 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

There are tons of myths and apocryphal stories about George Washington. The story in "Night of Decision" is probably about as reliable as stories of our first president having wooden teeth (they weren't) or chopping down a cherry tree (this was a fake story created by an overzealous minister well after Washington's death). In this episode of "One Step Beyond", Washington and his troops are facing starvation and cold at Valley Forge and the army might just disband. However, a dead Indian chief magically shows up to talk to 'ol George as he's out in the snow praying. This dead chief insisted that Washington is a man of destiny and he should hold fast--which is odd considering that the formation of the USA would result in the Indian tribes' conquest. Hmmm...guess the old chief never thought about that one!

This episode has two problems. First, it's not that interesting. Second, it seems ridiculous. While many of the stories from "One Step Beyond" seemed far-fetched, this one was REALLY far-fetched and a bit silly--especially when it claimed Washington saw visions of the Civil War and the Lindberg kidnapping (actually I made that last one up).
