13-part documentary chronicles the 26-year-long effort of the 13 American colonies to achieve independence from Great Britain. Written by the miniseries' primary director, Peter Schanll, in cooperation with Alexander Emmert and Stephen Stept, The Revolution uses a blend of live-action re-enactments, illustrations, and documents from the period, animated battle maps, talking-head commentary by historians and military experts, and dramatic voice-overs to tell the complex and fascinating story of the birth of the United States.
