Summary
In 1763, the capital city of America was London, George Washington was lobbying for a post in the British army, and no one thought of Boston harbor when they heard talk of tea parties. Yet in a dozen years, the colonies were on the brink of open rebellion. This classic program seeks to understand what happened to turn Great Britain's 13 colonies against their homeland
