The show follows New York farmer, Abe Woodhull, who bands together with a group of childhood friends to form The Culper Ring, an unlikely group of spies who turn the tide in America's fight for independence.--AMC-I can't say enough good things about the new TV show, Turn: Washington's Spies. It is based on a book with the same name, Washington's Spies by Alexander Rose. Rose serves as a consultant for the show. I look forward to reading the book.
-As I have mentioned many times before, I love learning about history, and am a war movie buff. The Civil War and the Revolutionary War are my favorite to learn about because both wars were fought for freedom.
-When I home schooled my kids, we watched a TV series called, Liberty's Kids which was about the Revolutionary War. It was very well done, and was accurate in the story it told.
-Turn tells a little bit different story, but it still looks at all sides of the Revolutionary War. What I have been most struck by is that the British had fully taken over whole towns. For some reason I hadn't pictured that before.
