    That sounds like a good idea, but what would happen to Sarah, James, Henri, and Moses?

    I accidentally deleted my last message.

    Couldn't Moses be a solider in the Civil War?

    Maybe Sarah could be one of the women who sent things to the soliders in WWII.

    I'd like to see a Civil War one. After that, I lose my interest in wars

    Sarah, James, and Henri could be all grown up too. Speaking that the Revolutionary War and War of 1812 aren't that far apart compared to all the other wars.

    Maybe they could do foreign wars as well. Like the French Revolution, or something.

    The French Revolution was a bit violent. But that is a good idea though!

    Maybe they can do the civil war and have the original character's grandchildren or something.

    Or they could use the concept of reincarnation

    Throughout these series, there could be a long standing line going about seven generations between James and Sara (Hiller?).

    So what your saying is Sarah and James had children together or they each have their own families?

    And does anyone know what we could do with the War of 1812.

    Yes. From the 19th century on, there were more generations.

    Since part of the appeal of the show is that it is from the point of view of children/teenagers (so that the younger viewers will have someone to relate to), Sarah, James and Henri would not necessarily be major characters, unless they filled in for the role that Moses played, as mentor to the new lead characters.  Of course, if they didn't grow up in the 7+ years that this show covered, maybe they could still be kids.  There would then have to be a reason for characters to come together, since they were basically going their separate ways.

    Other time periods would be great, but again there would have to be a new cast of lead characters.

    I think Liberty's Kids during the Great Depression would be cool. But, it wouldn't be the same. Sarah wouldn't be able to have her English accent anymore, because it would be irrelevant. Plus, there is just something about the Colonial Era that is so fascinating.
