Review by Publisher Summary 1

An exploration into America's Independence War and how it divided the nation between those who remained loyal to the Crown and those fighting for liberation from England. Using interviews with scholars, large-scale reconstruction, first-person narratives and a showcase of historic documents and paintings, the series travels back to the passionate, violent and sometimes tragically funny events of the 1770s. Stories told will represent every group involved: Redcoats, loyalists, rebels, neutrals, French soldiers, Indian warriors, slaves and sharecroppers.
