Editor's NoteThough the iconic image of a revolutionary patriot looms large in American history, not all 18th-century colonists favored independence from England. In fact, there were a number of groups among the colonial population--including loyalists, neutrals, French soldiers, Indians, and slaves--with differing opinions regarding American independence. This PBS documentary explores the cultural divide that existed among colonial Americans during the Revolutionary War, utilizing interviews, narratives, re-creations, and historic documents to reveal the amazing struggle between rebels and redcoats.
