The American Revolutionary War is seen through the eyes of an American teenaged lad, a young English lady, and a French boy, all three of whom work as reporters for Benjamin Franklin.
While airing on PBS, episode run-time would be extended with segments between episode acts. These segments included "The Liberty News Network" (hosted by Walter Cronkite as Benjamin Franklin), "Mystery Guest" (a guessing game hosted by James), "Now and Then" (a series comparing Colonial life to modern life, hosted by Sarah), and "Continental Cartoons" (a rebus guessing game featuring James, Henri and Sarah).
Oh James I'm so happy I could kiss you!
James Hiller: Please! I've suffered enough under the hands of the British!
From August through September, the characters are in two places at the exact same time. James and Henri are present to witness LaFayette's courage at Brandywine on 11 September 1777, yet are also with General Gates' American army at Saratoga (and James is a prisoner of the British during that Saratoga episode at the same time he's able to witness Brandywine).
