In the last episode of "Liberty! The American Revolution", the combined forces of the Continental Armies and French Army and Navy defeat the British at Yorktown. The war lingered on two more years--with few major engagements. Eventually, a peace treaty is signed and now what?! Among the topics covered is the plight of some Loyalists who flee after the Rebel victory, the problems with the Articles of Confederation, George Washington's desire to retire and the Constitutional Convention. Clearly, things were not working well following the war and without some strong form of centralized government it looks as if each colony will behave like a separate country.
Overall, a very well made episode of an exceptional series. The combination of fantastic writing and production values make this the best series on the Revolution you can find.
