This program is produced in partnership with the Falls of the Ohio Foundation and KET. This event is members of the Falls of the Ohio Foundation. 

With dramatic narration and authentically recreated scenes, enhanced with an original score, this film chronicles the settlement of the American Colonies, the formation of colonial governments, and the tension that resulted from the economic strain on Great Britain for its prosecution of the Seven Years War with France. It illustrates how Great Britain’s attempt to make the American colonies pay for its debts, among other issues, brought about the revolt. British Parliament’s passage of The Stamp Act, the Sugar Act, the Tea Act, the Coercive Acts, the Intolerable Acts and the Murder Act- and the effects of those acts upon the colonies- are all thoroughly explained. The reaction of Americans on the frontier who were settling lands beyond the King’s Proclamation Line of 1763, to events in Boston is portrayed. The production includes a dramatic portrayal of the opening battles at Lexington and Concord, and follows the American militias from there to Boston, where 20,000 of them laid siege to the city and the British troops occupying Boston.

This film is the first in a three-part series commemorating America’s 250th Anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence.
