In a few short years, these men and women would transform themselves into architects of the future through the building of a new nation unlike any that had ever come before.

- Visit the sites of some of the Revolution's most important battles.

Valley Forge DVD - Of all places associated with the Revolutionary War, perhaps none is more revered than Valley Forge, Pennsylvania. For it was here, over two centuries ago, that America faced its darkest hour and its greatest challenge. Yet no military battles were fought here. During the winter of 1777-78, thousands of soldiers died in the snowy encampment. Today, more than 4-million people visit the Valley Forge National Historical Park. We examine the archaeological excavations and building preservation.
Benedict Arnold: A Question of Honor DVD - He was perhaps the finest commander in the Continental Army. But he will always be remembered as a traitor who turned his back on America in its hour of need.
This original film from A&E Network Studios tells the true story of BENEDICT ARNOLD. After winning important victories for the breakaway colonies, Arnold is driven to resign by an ungrateful Congress. Coaxed back into service by his old friend George Washington, he is soon enmeshed in the divisive politics of Revolutionary Philadelphia. And when his love for a loyalist woman leads to scandal – and the Colonial leaders fail to support him – the stage is set for his fateful decision.
