Cambridge Forum: 1776

Friday, June 24 at 2:00 pm, repeating Saturday, June 25 at 6:00 pm

This week on Cambridge Forum acclaimed historian David McCullough brings to life the tumult and uncertainty of 1776 and shows how the courage and perseverance of a few dedicated men were responsible for the success of the American revolutionary experiment. The noble ideals of the Declaration of Independence would have been nothing more than high-minded words, had it not been for the actions of General George Washington and his fledgling Continental Army. Through a year of suffering and discouragement, all too few victories and many defeats, Washington stood at the center of the drama, never forgetting what was at stake and never giving up.
