Experience the defining moments of the war that gave birth to America

The American Revolution 100 brings to life the monumental moments, bloody battles, and influential leaders who gave birth to a great nation.

  • Who influenced the revolution more?John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, or John Paul Jones?
