'Legends & Lies' PREVIEW: Benjamin Franklin Returns to Join the Rebellion
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.
On last week's episode, we saw Paul Revere's famous ride and the first shots of the war at Lexington and Concord.
In this weekend's episode, Benjamin Franklin - Inventing America, the iconic figure returns to the colonies after a decade cavorting with the elites in London.
Franklin returns to America under a cloud of suspicion and accusations that he’s a traitor who's secretly collaborating with the enemy.
But Franklin is eager to prove himself a patriot and uses his exceptional intellect to prove it to his fellow Congressmen.
Soon, the elder statesman becomes the strongest voice for revolution in the Continental Congress, and when George Washington takes command of the ragtag Continental Army, Franklin heads a secret committee to prepare the fledgling army to take on the most powerful military force in the world!
Plus, see the powerful re-creation of the Battle of Bunker Hill.
Legends & Lies 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."
