Sons of Liberty!

SONS OF LIBERTY is a dramatic interpretation of events that sparked a revolution. It is historical fiction, not a documentary. The goal of our miniseries is to capture the spirit of the time, convey the personalities of the main characters, and focus on real events that have shaped our past.--History Channel
I'm watching Sons of Liberty on the History Channel.  I am a big history buff, especially when it is about the founding fathers and the Revolutionary War.

As always, when watching something that is historical fiction, I love finding out more about the real story.  The History channel has some great links that help in doing just that.

-10 Things You Should Know About Joseph Warren
-11 Things You May Not Know About Paul Revere
-Boston Tea Party: 10 Fast Facts
-9 Things You May Not Know About The Declaration of Independence
I personally knew very little about Joseph Warren, so I found that link particularly helpful.  There are even more history links, take the time to check them out here.
