Storyline

It is often said that winners write prevailing histories. Bias and inaccuracies of memory lead to legends supporting the views of the winners. In Legends and Lies-The Patriots, the authors differentiate the facts of events from contemporary popular opinions which have survived to the present day. The character studies are insightful and do much to explain the motivations of citizens to become Patriots opposing the British. The dramatization makes the series come alive for adults and children.

Jesse James
27 December 2015 | by jakjackjacksonSee all my reviews

Actually I took issue with the episode featuring Jesse James too, mostly for some of the reasons as the previous comment. I take exception to what the previous comment said about Jesse James being connected with the KKK though. James was instead connected to the KGC, which stands for the Knights of the Golden Circle, whose aim it was to reignite the Civil War and the money they raised was solely for that purpose. In one of the group pictures of the James brothers, Frank James and others are seen displaying the sign of the Knights of the Golden Circle, which was two fingers over their chest.

In the episode featuring the Lone Ranger, there may be another explanation for Bass's accidental shooting of his cook. I just saw a documentary on the History Channel about the Winchester 700 rifle which has been misfiring for decades, until finally the courts are seeing a backlog of accidental shootings when the safety is released or the rifle is bumped.
