Don't miss this weekend's episode of the hit docu-series Legends & Lies on Sunday at 8:00pm ET on Fox News Channel!

In Legends & Lies: The Patriots, you get to see the American Revolution, as it really happened.

In the season premiere, we met Sam Adams and Paul Revere and saw the birth of the rebellion. 

In this weekend's episode, John Adams - Ready for War, you'll learn how the idealistic lawyer defended the British soldiers who killed five men in The Boston Massacre, while The Sons of Liberty rebel against the Tea Act by dumping 10,000 pounds of English tea into Boston Harbor.

Meantime, Paul Revere’s intelligence network discovers a plot to assassinate John Hancock and Sam Adams, and the silversmith takes a famous ride to rescue his fellow patriots.

During their retreat, the first shots of the revolution are fired at Lexington and Concord. 

Watch a preview clip below. 


The series is narrated by executive producer Bill O'Reilly and produced by Warm Springs Productions, which is known for such programs as The History Channel’s "Mountain Men," Animal Planet’s "American River Renegades" and HGTV’s "Log Cabin Living."
