Sons of Liberty Picture Preview: The Spark of Revolution

at . Comments

If you enjoy historical fiction, then HISTORY's Sons of Liberty is one event miniseries you won't want to miss.

After all, it's these radical young men that sparked our revolution leading to the founding of the United States of America as we know it.

That's right they're all here: Sam Adams, John Adams, Paul Revere, John Hancock, and Dr. Joseph Warren. Plus, joining the fight are George Washington and Benjamin Franklin among other legends.

Flip through the slideshow to meet the cast, and check out a few memorable moments from Sons of Liberty.

This epic three-night, six-hour event takes us from the Boston Massacre and Boston Tea Party, to the meeting of the First Continental Congress; from Paul Revere's famous ride, to the start of the American Revolutionary War.

We get a chance to see General George Washington in action leading the Continental Army, and our founding fathers draft and sign the Declaration of Independence. I get chills just thinking about these historic moments.

Not sold yet? Well, I've previewed the first two nights, so I can tell you the acting is sensational and they've recreated the period exquisitely.

Keep in mind "historical fiction" is entertainment, this is not a documentary, so don't watch it looking to nitpick at inaccuracies. Grab a beer, sit back and watch the very first Americans struggle to achieve independence.

Sons of Liberty airs on January 25, 26 and 27 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on HISTORY.
