13-part documentary about the 26-year-long effort of the 13 American colonies to achieve independence from Great Britain and the birth of a new nation in the Western Hemisphere. 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 creation of the United States.
