They came of age in a
new world amid intoxicating and innovative ideas about human and civil rights, diverse economic systems, and self-government.
In a few short years these men and women would transform themselves into architects of the future through the building of
a new nation unlike any that had ever come before. 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, THE REVOLUTION tells the remarkable
story of this pivotal era in history. Venturing beyond the conventional list of generals and politicians, THE HISTORY CHANNEL®
introduces the full range of individuals who helped shape this great conflict, including some of the war’s most influential
unsung heroes. Through sweeping cinematic recreations, intimate biographical investigations, and provocative political, military,
and economic analysis, the historic ideas and themes that transformed treasonous acts against the British into noble acts
of courage both on and off the battlefield come to life in this dramatic and captivating program. DVD Features: Behind the
