Plot Synopsis

They were everyday men and women -- farmers and shopkeepers, sailors and traders, seamstresses and silversmiths, brewers and printers -- who came of age in a new world amid a flood of intoxicating new ideas and dared to take on the mightiest empire in the world. "The Revolution" is 13-part series that tells the story of a remarkable group of ordinary individuals who transformed themselves into architects of the future and built a new nation unlike any that had ever come before. From the roots of the Revolution to the signing of the Declaration of Independence, victory at Yorktown to the adoption of the U.S. Constitution, "The Revolution" unfolds this critical era of American history through sweeping cinematic recreations, intimate biographical investigation, provocative political, military and economic commentary, and evocative original music. Much of the series is filmed on the locations where history was made, from Fort Ticonderoga in the North to Charleston in the South.
