The General
18 April 2015 | by AaronCapenBannerSee all my reviews

Historical-based episode tells the reputed psychic vision that general George Washington had in his "winter of despair" in 1777 at his headquarters in Valley Forge. Washington is beset with doubt about whether or not to continue with the revolutionary war against the British, when victory is so uncertain, or should they fight on for full independence? A mysterious appearance of a supposedly dead Native American chief pointing out the seeming providential invulnerability of Washington, and his later vision of a future powerful and expansive country(despite a predicted civil war) convince him to soldier on to what would be a successful outcome. Interesting take on the future first American president and the psychic phenomenon that was the trademark of this three year series.
