Overview

The must-have companion to Bill O'Reilly's historical docudrama "Legends and Lies: The Patriots," an exciting and eye-opening look at the Revolutionary War through the lives of its leaders

The American Revolution was neither inevitable nor a unanimous cause. It pitted neighbors against each other, as loyalists and colonial rebels faced off for their lives and futures. These were the times that tried men's souls: no one was on stable ground and few could be trusted. Through the fascinating tales of the first Americans, "Legends and Lies: The Patriots "reveals the contentious arguments that turned friends into foes and the country into a warzone.

From the riots over a child's murder that led to the Boston Massacre to the suspicious return of Ben Franklin, the "First American;" from the Continental Army's first victory under George Washington's leadership to the little known southern Guerilla campaign of "Swamp Fox" Francis Marion, and the celebration of America's first Christmas, "The Patriots" recreates the amazing combination of resourcefulness, perseverance, strategy, and luck that led to this country's creation.

Told in the same fast-paced, immersive narrative as the first "Legends and Lies, The Patriots "is an irresistible, adventure-packed journey back into one of the most storied moments of our nation's rich history.
