Great view of our nation's history.

Four episodes: "Rebels With A Cause" discusses Sam Adams and John Hancock and how they influenced the start of the revolution. "Taking Liberties" discusses the heavy British tax levies, the Boston Massacre, the eloquence of orator Patrick Henry and the attempt of Benjamin Franklin to patch things up with King George. "You Say You Want a Revolution" discusses Thomas Jefferson, the early failures of George Washington, the arrest of Benjamin Franklin's son for plotting to aid the British and the support of the French. "A healthy Constitution" goes into what happened after the final defeat of the British, the lack of funds to run the country, James Madison's salvation of the revolution, and George Washington's refusal of the title "King".
