The American Revolution

American Revolution (DCL)

Everyone knows the story of Paul Revere and his famous midnight ride to warn colonial forces of the British approach. But history books don't tell of the man who sent Revere on his mission: Joseph Warren, America's least remembered founding father.

Uncover the forgotten history of Warren and stories of other unsung heroes in our fight for independence in The American Revolution. In order for the Declaration of Independence - and its famous ideals of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness - to mean anything, the underdog army of heroic Americans would have to fight. And fight they did, from the mob-provoked Boston Massacre in 1770, to the battles of Lexington and Concord in 1775, to the battle of Yorktown in 1781.

The American Revolution chronicles the rise of the rebellion, failures and setbacks of the colonial mission, and the ultimate comeback that resulted in the birth of a nation.

Watch The American Revolution on Sundays at 10pm.
