Summary, etc.:
The episode begins by examining how the terrorist attack of September 11th sparked a renewed focus on freedom. The program then takes us back to the summer of 1776.. The thirteen colonies stake everything on an armed struggle for freedom and the chance to build a new kind of nation. Beginning with a look at the decision to declare independence, the film explores the escalating conflict with Great Britain, including the Boston Tea Party and Paul Revere's famous midnight ride. America's founding fathers such as George Washington, Samuel Adams, and Thomas Jefferson -- along with other well-known historical figures, including Abigail Adams and Tom Paine -- all play roles in the fight for liberty.
