Abstract

Director D.W. Griffith's sweeping account of the American Revolutionary War. Two lovers on opposite sides find themselves at key places throughout the war such as Bunker Hill, Paul Revere's ride, and the presidential inauguration of George Washington. Accurately detailed shots such as those counter with the brutal depiction of Native Americans, shown as barbarians who savagely murder patriots.
