The Revolution

The war that founded a nation.

From the roots of the rebellion and the signing of the Declaration of Independence…to victory on the battlefield at Yorktown and the adoption of The United States Constitution, this 13-part series tells the remarkable story of the tumultuous birth of the United States. .

Venturing beyond the conventional list of generals and politicians we introduce the full range of individuals who helped shape this great conflict, including some of the war’s most influential unsung heroes. Through cinematic recreations, intimate biographical investigations, and provocative political, military, and economic analysis, THE REVOLUTION breathes new life into one of the most pivotal periods in American history.
