OF EDUCATION Narrator: HERE ARE SOME EXCITING
SCENES FROM TODAY’S EPISODE OFLIBERTY’S KIDS…LIBERTY! DOWN WITH THE KING! FREEDOM! HURRAH! Howe: WE’LL DRIVE THESE
PESKY REBELS INTO THE RIVER, AND HAVE OUR TROOPS HOME
IN TIME FOR CHRISTMAS. Cavalryman:
BRITISH REGULARS–
THEY’RE RIGHT BEHIND ME! Washington:
THEY’RE RUNNING?
WHY ARE THEY RUNNING? Aide: BECAUSE
THEY CAN’T FLY. Sarah: “JULY 9, 1776. “DEAREST MOTHER,
WHERE TO BEGIN? “JAMES, HENRI, AND I HAVE BEEN
IN NEW YORK CITY FOR A WEEK NOW. “GENERAL WASHINGTON,
THE COMMANDER
OF THE AMERICAN ARMY “HAS BEEN BUSY FORTIFYING
THE CITY AND HARBOR, “AND NO WONDER,
WITH THE ARRIVAL
OF THE BRITISH FLEET. “WHAT A SIGHT! “SOME SAY THERE ARE
SO MANY MASTS “THAT IT LOOKS LIKE
A FLOATING FOREST. “YOU WERE SO KIND
TO ASK MRS. RADCLIFFE
TO GIVE US LODGINGS. THEY ARE QUITE RESTFUL.” Man: DOWN
WITH THE KING! “I’M SORRY I CANNOT
SAY THE SAME FOR NEW YORK. “EVER SINCE THE READING “OF THE INDEPENDENCE DECLARATION
ON THE 7th, IT HAS BEEN A CITY
GONE QUITE MAD.” [GASPS] [ANGRY SHOUTING] DOWN WITH THE KING! FREEDOM! [YELLING] HEY, I AM GOING
TO HELP THEM PULL DOWN THE STATUE
OF KING GEORGE III. HENRI, STAY HERE. YOU’RE NOTHING BUT A MAGNET
FOR TROUBLE. ANYWHERE YOU GO,
BAD THINGS HAPPEN. DO NOT. I THINK YOU’D BETTER
LISTEN TO JAMES. YOU TWO ARE JUST JEALOUS BECAUSE I HAVE MORE FUN
THAN YOU DO. Man: DOWN WITH GEORGE! [CHEERING] INDEPENDENCE! OF WHAT POSSIBLE GOOD
IS A BROKEN STATUE? I HEARD THEY’RE TAKING IT
UP TO A CANNONBALL FACTORY
IN CONNECTICUT. AND WHY ON EARTH
WOULD THEY GO
TO ALL THAT TROUBLE? GENERAL WASHINGTON
TOLD HIS STAFF THAT HE INTENDS TO RETURN
THE LEAD IN THE STATUE TO THE BRITISH TROOPS
AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. SEEMS PRETTY BOASTFUL. GENERAL WASHINGTON’S
BEEN COMMANDER IN CHIEF
OF THE CONTINENTAL ARMY A WHOLE YEAR AND HAS YET
TO FIGHT A BATTLE. I THINK HE’LL GET
HIS BATTLE SOON…A BIG ONE. GENERAL HOWE,
YOUR TELESCOPE, SIR. THERE. THAT’S WHERE WE’LL
STRIKE GENERAL WASHINGTON
AND HIS ARMY… ON THE HEIGHTS. WE’LL DRIVE
THESE PESKY REBELS
INTO THE RIVER AND HAVE OUR TROOPS HOME
IN TIME FOR CHRISTMAS. I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE
MORE COMFORTABLE
EATING HERE. NOWADAYS THE STREETS
ARE SO UNSAFE. [COUGHING] THIS COLLAR IS UNSAFE. I DON’T KNOW
WHERE ALL THOSE
DREADFUL PERSONS ON THE STREET
HAVE COME FROM. I’VE NEVER SEEN THEM
INTHISNEIGHBORHOOD
BEFORE. [SLURPING] SHH. OUT-OF-TOWN TROUBLEMAKERS
WOULD BE MY GUESS. AS MR. RADCLIFFE
USED TO SAY, “THIS REBELLION BUSINESS
WILL SOON GET OUT OF HAND.” I’M SORRY I WON’T GET TO SEE
MR. RADCLIFFE THIS TRIP. MY MOTHER USED TO ENJOY
HIS STORIES. YOU SAID HE’S IN… UNH…ER…CANADA? YES. SEEING
TO SOME TIMBERLAND WE ARE
THINKING OF BUYING
ALONG THE ST. LAWRENCE. WELL, I’M JUST GLAD
THE BRITISH FLEET
HAS ARRIVED. THE SOONER GENERAL HOWE
PUTS THINGS RIGHT, THE SOONER WE CAN ALL
GET THIS SILLY REVOLUTION
BUSINESS OVER WITH AND GET BACK TO NORMAL. OH, BOY! WHY WERE YOU
MAKING THOSE FACES
AT MRS. RADCLIFFE’S? I COULDN’T STAND IT. “SEEING TO SOME TIMBERLAND WE’RE THINKING OF BUYING
ALONG THE ST. LAWRENCE.” STOP THAT. IT’S IMPOLITE. I SAW A LIST OF TORIES
AT GENERAL WASHINGTON’S
HEADQUARTERS. MR. RADCLIFFE’S NAME
WAS ON IT. YOU DON’T MEAN
THE ARMY IS GOING AFTER
PRIVATE CITIZENS?! NO, BUT SOME OTHER
PRIVATE CITIZENS MIGHT. AND I THINK MR. RADCLIFFE
AND SOME OF HIS FRIENDS THOUGHT IT BEST TO LEAVE
UNTIL THINGS BLOW OVER. I DON’T THINK THINGS
WILL BLOW OVER VERY SOON IF OUR HENRI HAS ANYTHING
TO DO WITH IT. HEY, CAREFUL! SOMETIMES I THINK
HENRI BELIEVES THIS IS ALL JUST A BIG PARTY
FOR HIS BENEFIT. UH, SARAH,
DON’T LOOK NOW, BUT I THINK SOMEONE
HAS HIS EYE ON YOU. OH…DON’T BE FOOLISH. AWFULLY BUSY, ISN’T SHE? YES. SHE THINKS
SHE’S A JOURNALIST. MISS, ALLOW ME
TO INTRODUCE MYSELF. I AM UDNEY WOLFF HUTCHINSON
FROM MILFORD, CONNECTICUT. MY COMRADES-IN-ARMS AND I
HAVE ARRIVED TO DEFEND
THIS CITY, AND LADIES SUCH AS YOURSELF, FROM THE CRUEL, VINDICTIVE
ENGLISH. I AM ENGLISH MYSELF, SIR. DOES THAT MAKE ME CRUEL
AND VINDICTIVE AS WELL? UH, I WAS ONLY
REPEATING TERMS SOME OF OUR ROUGHER MEMBERS
COMMONLY USE TO REFER
TO THE ENEMY. WHETHER THEY ARE
CRUEL AND VINDICTIVE
OR GENTLEMEN, THEY ARE SOLDIERS,
AND I OFFER MY STRONG ARM
FOR YOUR PROTECTION. FORGIVE ME.
DUTY CALLS. YOU’VE GOT TO BE
KIDDING? DIDN’T HE SAY
HIS NAME WAS “UGLY”? IT WASUDNEY,
AND YOU KNOW IT. UNH! WHEW! WHERE ARE YOU GOING? WITH YOU AND THE SOLDIERS
OVER TO BROOKLYN TO WATCH THE BATTLE. SARAH– I’M A JOURNALIST, TOO! REMEMBER CONCORD?! YOUR PROMISE TO BEN? “DR. FRANKLIN,
I WON’T PUT MYSELF
NEEDLESSLY IN DANGER.” WHAT IS IT WITH YOU
AND YOUR NEED TO IMITATE PEOPLE? ALL RIGHT,
LET ME PUT IT THIS WAY: YOU CAN’T GO. YOU’RE NOT MY MOTHER. SHE’S RIGHT.
YOU’RE NOT HER MOTHER. HMM. NO, BUT I’M RESPONSIBLE
TO DR. FRANKLIN, ANDHE’SRESPONSIBLE
TO HER MOTHER. BESIDES,
IT’S TOO BIG A STORY FOR BOTH OF US
TO BE IN ONE PLACE. ONE OF US NEEDS TO REPORT
ON WHAT HAPPENS IN THE CITY. LET’S FACE IT.
YOU’RE MORE COMFORTABLE
WITH TEA AND CRUMPETS THAN ME. I MUST ADMIT,
JAMES, OCCASIONALLY
YOU’RE RIGHT. James: GENERAL WASHINGTON
SENDS REINFORCEMENTS TO THE FORT
ON THE HEIGHTS AT BROOKLYN TO COUNTER A LARGE FORCE
OF BRITISH TROOPS HEADING
FOR LONG ISLAND. ALL RIGHT.
I’M GOING TO WASHINGTON’S
HEADQUARTERS. WHAT ABOUT ME?!
CAN I GO?! NO. NO. WE’LL SEE
ABOUT THAT. SARAH, WHO’S THAT
WAVING AT YOU? OH, IT’S THAT– HENRI? “GENERAL PUTNAM INFORMS ME
THAT THE BRITISH ARE MOVING
UP THE GOWANUS ROAD, AND HESSIAN TROOPS
HAVE BEEN SPOTTED
ON THE FLATBUSH ROAD, BUT THERE IS STILL
A SUBSTANTIAL NUMBER
IN CAMP ON THE BEACH. I DON’T HAVE TO TELL YOU
WHAT IS AT STAKE HERE,
GENTLEMEN– EVERYTHING WORTH LIVING FOR. NONE OF MY BOYS WILL
DISAPPOINT YOU, GENERAL. THEY’LL THROW THE REDCOATS
BACK ONTO THEIR BOATS. GENERAL, IF I MAY? THIS JAMAICA ROAD
CONCERNS ME. IT’S PRESENTLY UNDEFENDED. THE ENEMY IS HERE
AT THE GOWANUS SWAMP, AND THAT IS WHERE
I’LL STRIKE HIM. UNH! LORD STIRLING! I WONDER IF I COULD ASK YOU
A FEW QUESTIONS? YES, GENERAL WASHINGTON
TOLD ME ABOUT YOU. FRANKLIN’S APPRENTICE. DOES IT BOTHER YOU
THAT A GOOD PORTION
OF THE ENEMY IS MADE UP OF HESSIANS? WELL, SON,
THE ENEMY IS THE ENEMY, WHETHER THEY’RE
BRITISH TROOPS OR GERMAN MERCENARIES
HIRED TO FIGHT
BY THE BRITISH. BUT TO HAVE NO OTHER REASON
TO BE HERE THAN TO FIGHT
FOR MONEY? NO CAUSE, NO COUNTRY, NO FREEDOM AT STAKE–
IT DOESN’T SEEM RIGHT. I THINK YOU’LL FIND
THEY HAVE AS MANY REASONS
TO BE HERE AS WE DO. NOW, IF YOU WILL EXCUSE ME? GENTLEMEN, I HAVE
A SPECIAL MISSION IN MIND. I NEED VOLUNTEERS…PAIDVOLUNTEERS. I’M IN! SURE. WHAT’S THE MISSION? Sarah: IN THE INTEREST
OF FAIRNESS, I THINK THE READERS
OF DR. FRANKLIN’S NEWSPAPER SHOULD UNDERSTAND THE THOUGHTS
OF THOSE LOYAL TO THE KING. THAT’S A DANGEROUS
POINT OF VIEW TO HAVE
THESE DAYS. WELL, NEVERTHELESS… I’M INTERESTED
IN WHATYOUTHINK
ABOUT THE REVOLUTION. I’D KEEP YOUR NAME
OUT OF IT. I THINK IT’S A DANGEROUS,
FOOLHARDY ADVENTURE. WHY DO THEY WANT TO FIGHT
TO CREATE THEIR OWN COUNTRY?! THEY FEEL ENGLAND
HAS MISTREATED THEM. I’VE READ THIS
DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE. IS IT WORTH GOING TO WAR
BECAUSE THE KING CALLED FOR THEIR
LEGISLATIVE BODIES TO MEET IN UNCOMFORTABLE
PLACES?! THAT’S JUST
ONE OF THEIR REASONS. AND THE MEN WHO SIGNED IT– WHAT DO THEY KNOW
ABOUT RUNNING A COUNTRY? THESE NEW YORKERS HERE– FRANCIS LEWIS,
A HAT SELLER… LEWIS MORRIS,
A FARMER FROM UP-COUNTRY… WILLIAM FLOYD–
I’VE NEVER EVEN HEARD OF HIM. THIS PHILLIP LIVINGSTON
IS SUCH AN INSUFFERABLE
BLOW-HARD, MR. RADCLIFFE HAD TO ASK HIM
TO LEAVE A SUPPER WE WERE
GIVING FOR THE GOVERNOR. DR. FRANKLIN
SIGNED IT, TOO. YES, I KNOW. EVEN THE BRIGHTEST OF MEN
DO FOOLISH THINGS
FROM TIME TO TIME. MY DEAR, YOU YOURSELF
ARE ENGLISH BORN AND BRED. OUR WHOLE LIVES
ARE TIED TO ENGLAND… OUR COMMERCE,
OUR CULTURE, OUR LAWS, OUR RELIGION,
OUR EDUCATION. WHERE DO YOUNG AMERICANS
GO TO BECOME DOCTORS,
LAWYERS, AND CLERGYMEN? ENGLAND. IN WHAT LANGUAGE ARE YOU
WRITING YOUR ARTICLE? ENGLISH. EXACTLY. [CANNON BOOMS] OH, MY. [BOOM] IT’S STARTED. OH, DEAR. MAY GOD
PROTECT US ALL. LOOKS LIKE GENERAL SULLIVAN
WAS RIGHT ABOUT THE ATTACK. IT’S WAY OVER THERE
BY GOWANUS SWAMP. UM, I WAS WONDERING, WHY DID YOU TAKE MONEY
FROM LORD STIRLING? I THOUGHT HESSIANS WERE
THE ONLY ONES WHO
FIGHT FOR MONEY. WE FIGHT FOR A CAUSE. JAMES, I BELIEVE
IN OUR CAUSE AS MUCH
AS THE NEXT MAN, BUT I HAVEN’T BEEN PAID
IN A LONG TIME. EVERYONE NEEDS A FEW COINS, AND GOODNESS KNOWS
LORD STIRLING
HAS PLENTY TO SPARE. BELIEVE ME, THERE’S
NOT ENOUGH MONEY ON EARTH TO MAKE MEN FACE FIRE
LIKE THAT, BUT THEY’RE DOING IT, AND MY TIME WILL COME. [HORSE WHINNIES] THAT’S A RIDER. COMING FAST, TOO. BRITISH REGULARS! THEY’RE RIGHT BEHIND ME! LORD STIRLING
WAS RIGHT. THEY’RE USING
JAMAICA ROAD
FOR AN ATTACK. COME ON! UNH! Jones: YOU SAY
YOU’RE A SPY? ON THE STAFF OF
GENERAL WASHINGTON
HIMSELF. YOU’RE JUST
A CHILD. THAT IS THE BEAUTY OF IT. EVERYONE THINKS THAT
AND PAYS ME NO MIND. WHAT BETTER DISGUISE
FOR A SPY? [GUNSHOT] [MEN YELLING] Soldier: OVER THERE! Second soldier:
THERE THEY ARE! Third soldier:
AFTER THEM! HALT! WHOA! GENERAL WASHINGTON, THE ENTIRE RIGHT
IS FALLING BACK
ON GOWANUS ROAD. ON THE LEFT,
GENERAL SULLIVAN
HAS BEEN FLANKED, AND HE CANNOT HOLD. WHERE? THE JAMAICA ROAD. LORD STIRLING’S
TROOPS HELD OUT AS LONG AS
THEY COULD, BUT NOW THEY’RE
PULLING BACK
TO THE HEIGHTS. THEY’RE RUNNING?
WHY ARE THEY RUNNING? BECAUSE
THEY CAN’T FLY. [GRUNTS] YOU AWAKE? AFTER TODAY, I DON’T
KNOW IF I’LL EVER
SLEEP AGAIN. HOW DO YOU THINK
GENERAL WASHINGTON DID? ALL’S I KNOW,
GENERAL WASHINGTON GOES A YEAR
WITHOUT A BATTLE, FIRST ONE COMES ALONG, AND THE BEST
WE CAN DO IS RUN AWAY. NOBODY COULD STAND UP
TO WHAT THE BRITISH
THREW DOWN THAT ROAD. WELL,
WE
SURE DIDN’T. WHAT NOW? I DON’T KNOW. I JUST HOPE WE DON’T
HAVE TO SURRENDER. GENERAL, THE REPORTS
SAY THE TROOPS THAT
SURVIVED THE ATTACKS ARE SAFELY BACK
ONTO THE HEIGHTS. HOW MANY DIDN’T SURVIVE? WE DON’T KNOW YET. LORD STIRLING WAS CAPTURED. CASUALTY ESTIMATES ARE HIGH. THERE’S MORE. WHAT ELSE? THEY CAPTURED
GENERAL SULLIVAN, TOO. HMM. GENERAL HOWE
IS WELCOME TO HIM. BOATS. ALL THE BOATS
WE CAN FIND. WE ARE LEAVING
THE HEIGHTS. IN THE MORNING, SIR? NOW. LISTEN, I AM NOT
EVEN A COLONIST. I AM EUROPEAN,
LIKE YOU. [GERMAN ACCENT]
WE THINK YOU ARE A SPY, AND UNTIL WE THINK
SOMETHING ELSE, YOU’RE NOT GOING ANYWHERE. A SPY?!
WHAT AN IDEA. I AM JUST A KID! [YAWNS] IS THAT EVERYONE? YES, GENERAL.
WE’RE THE LAST. THE REST OF THE
TROOPS HAVE ALREADY
ESCAPED IN THE BOATS. [GRUNTS] GENERAL, OUR RETREAT AT NIGHT
IN THE FACE OF THE ENEMY WILL BE SEEN AS THE WORK
OF A MILITARY GENIUS. I’M AFRAID THIS RETREAT
IS A VERY UN-MILITARY
THING TO DO. WE WERE LICKED,
PLAIN AND SIMPLE. I WASN’T READY FOR THEM. [SNORING] POWDER? GUH…UHH…NNN. GUN. GUNPOWDER?! [HICCUP]
OOPS. WHOA! [BOOM] NOW THERE’S SOMETHING
YOU DON’T SEE EVERY DAY. ARE THESE REPORTS
CORRECT, CAPTAIN? THE COLONIALS ABANDONED
THE ENTIRE FORT LAST NIGHT? YES, GENERAL WASHINGTON
SAILED OFF UNDER THE COVER
OF FOG AND DARKNESS. IT SEEMS GENERAL WASHINGTON DOESN’T BELIEVE IN THE
ACCEPTED CONVENTIONS OF WAR. YOU LOSE THE BATTLE,
YOU SURRENDER. JAMES! YOU’RE BACK. PARDON ME. ARE YOU ALL RIGHT? I’M FINE. REALLY. WELL, WHAT WAS
THE BATTLE LIKE? IT WAS PRETTY BAD… BUT GENERAL WASHINGTON
SAFELY SNUCK THE WHOLE ARMY
AWAY DURING THE NIGHT. WHERE’S HENRI? ISN’T HE HERE? WE HAVEN’T SEEN HIM
SINCE YOU LEFT
YESTERDAY. I THOUGHT HE
CAUGHT UP WITH YOU. I WONDER WHERE HE…
OH, NO. HENRI, WHERE HAVE
YOU BEEN? NOWHERE. WHAT HAVE YOU DONE? NOTHING. WHAT KIND OF TROUBLE
DID YOU CAUSE THIS TIME? ME? TROUBLE? DO WE REALLY
WANT TO KNOW? Both: NO. WHERE ARE YOU GOING? SINCE WASHINGTON’S
RETREAT FROM LONG ISLAND
WEEKS AGO, GENERAL HOWE’S DONE
NOTHING UNTIL TODAY. [CANNON FIRE] THAT CANNON FIRE HAS
BEEN GOING ON ALL DAY. JAMES SAID SOMETHING
WAS UP AT KIP’S BAY, AND I BET
HE’S THERE ALREADY. WANT TO BET? James: SARAH! HENRI! WE LOST AGAIN! YOU WERE THERE? NO. I FOUND UGLY,
AND HE TOLD ME WHAT HAPPENED. IS UDNEY ALL RIGHT? YES. WHY? I THOUGHT
YOU DIDN’T LIKE HIM. WELL, I WAS
JUST WONDERING,
THAT’S ALL. SO WHAT HAPPENED? WELL, UDNEY TOLD ME… Udney: WE WAS WAITIN’
AT KIP’S BAY WHEN
THE BRITISH OPENED FIRE. GENERAL WASHINGTON
TOLD US TO STAND OUR GROUND. BUT I GUESS IT WAS TOO MUCH
FOR SOME OF US. THE OFFICERS COULDN’T
STOP ‘EM. STAND YOUR GROUND! RETURN TO
THE RAMPARTS! STAND YOUR GROUND,
YOU… [HORSE NEIGHS] HOW AM I TO WIN A WAR
WITH MEN LIKE THESE? GENERAL! YOU MUST COME AWAY! YOU CAN’T WIN A WAR
BY RETREATING… OR CAN YOU? SO THAT’S UDNEY’S STORY. IT’S NOT A PROUD DAY
FOR OUR REVOLUTION. WHAT’S WASHINGTON
GOING TO DO NOW? [CHEERING] I’M PUZZLED,
GENERAL HOWE. WHAT KIND OF COMMANDER
FIGHTS A BATTLE AND AFTER LOSING,
INSTEAD OF SURRENDERING, RETREATS TO FIGHT AGAIN? EVIDENTLY, THIS AMERICAN
GENERAL WASHINGTON. [WHINNIES] [BELL TOLLS] MOSES, HERE’S ANOTHER
DISPATCH FROM JAMES. LET IT BE GOOD NEWS
FOR A CHANGE. “IT SEEMS WE STILL HAVE
QUITE A FEW TROOPS AND GENERAL WASHINGTON
HAS MOVED THEM ALL TO A
FORT ON HARLEM HEIGHTS.” James: THIS IS TURNING INTO
A NEW KIND OF WAR, AN AMERICAN WAR. GENERAL WASHINGTON IS GOING
TO FIGHT A DELAYING ACTION, HOPING TO WEAR DOWN THE
BRITISH WHILE GIVING HIMSELF TIME TO BUILD AND TRAIN
AN ARMY. “AN ARMY THAT FIGHTS
WITH LITTLE OR NO PAY, “FEW SUPPLIES, FEW WEAPONS, “BUT WITH A BELIEF
THAT THEY ARE AMERICANS, “AND AMERICANS WILL FIGHT
AND DIE FOR FREEDOM. NOTHING LESS.” James: P.S.: SOME SOLDIERS ARE PUTTING UP A FLAG ON
OUR NEW FLAGPOLE. THERE’S NOT MUCH WIND TODAY SO THE FLAG IS JUST
HANGING THERE. “BUT IT’S STILL THERE.” ♪ I’M LOOKIN’ AT LIFE
