About this show

The American Revolution follows General George Washington on his epic quest to defeat the world's largest Empire. He faces British troops, American Tories, Hessian mercenaries, mutinying generals, a bankrupt congress, and his own incompetent troops. He is followed by a wild and endearing troop of new recruits - The Rebel Mess. These four crazy patriots tumble through the war, making jokes, songs, and trouble for themselves along the way. The action spans Boston, New York, Philadelphia, London, Paris, and Yorktown, and includes recognizable historical figures such as Benedict Arnold and Washington himself.
