  • Episode 5: The Siege of Boston

    15/01/2018 Duração: 35min

    We all know how the story of the American Revolution starts--Paul Revere, the lamps in the Old North Church, and the battles of Lexington and Concord. But what happens in the sequel? Boston, like an ex-Navy SEAL who just wants to live peacefully as a cook, comes under siege. For eleven months, the British and the Continental Army stare each other down--spying, sniping, skirmishing, and drinking. A whole lot of drinking. The siege of Boston was the first true test of General George Washington and the fledgling cause of American liberty.
