Excellent documentary
4 April 2017 | by kshlyapok-65184See all my reviews

I've lived in the area almost my whole life and did not know the specifics of how important the King's Highway was to the local economy and Revolutionary War. This movie was so educational and yet also entertaining in the way it educated you, I really enjoyed it. Any history buff should make the time to view the movie as they will get the full story and not just a blurb about the King's Highway like we got in school. I've always felt Philadelphia was a key part of making America what it is today and this movie finally shows why and how.
