Before he became the Father of our nation, the face on our dollar bill, before he defined enduring customs for this country’s 200+ years of existence, he was the man that broke the most powerful military force in the world and led the United States to freedom. WASHINGTON THE WARRIOR: In this landmark release, HISTORY presents an intimate chronicle of Washington’s little-known military life. Follow him from his first officer’s commission in the Virginia militia through the difficult lessons of his youth and his 17-year retirement. Witness his reemergence as the soul of the American Revolution and see how he transformed a ragtag band of men into an army that could battle — and beat — the greatest military in the world. THE CROSSING: December 17, 1776. Hounded by superior British forces, his army decimated by disease, desertion and lack of funds, General George Washington (played by Jeff Daniels) faces the unthinkable: he is losing the war for American independence. With the fate of the American Revolution hanging in the balance, Washington takes his ragtag army across the ice-choked Delaware River. That morning he leads a surprise attack against a garrison of battle-hardened Hessian mercenaries in a military strike that would forever change the fate of the young nation. BONUS FEATURES: Behind-the-Scenes Featurette; Jeff Daniels Biography/Filmography; Roger Rees Biography/Filmography; Historical Quotes; Washington The Warrior - Behind-the-Scenes
