  • The very first episode of Liberty's Kids.

    James, Moses, and Henri head to Boston to pick up Miss Sarah Phillips, a family friend of Dr. Franklin's.

    While in Boston James and Moses stumble upon a big story.
    The colonist are throwing tea overboard in protest to the taxes, which we know as the Boston Tea Party.

    Sarah questions James' loyalty to the Queen.

    Ben Franklin is accused of being a traitor.

    This was a great first episode.
    We learn that Sarah believes in freedom yet isn't ready to go against the King.

    We also learn that James is a journalist, without the grammar skills, and that Moses was born a free man but sold into slavery.
