It is 1763, and after more than a century of British rule in the colonies, people in America still consider themselves British. Their capital is London; their King is George III.
By 1775, just a dozen years later, the colonies are on the brink of rebellion against their King and their country. Why did this happen? What had changed in such a short period of time?
This documentary, which includes recreations (based on primary sources) and interviews (with historians and leading experts) provides the background of the growing conflict between Britain and her American colonies.
