Reveals the heroic efforts of five little-known patriots during the American Revolution as they help the colonies live to fight another day. John Glover, a  tough New England mariner, saves 9,000 soldiers from certain capture on Long Island; a shadowy double agent, John Honeyman, helps Washington score a stunning victory at Trenton; a teenage girl named Sybil Ludington rides to the rescue of rebels under fire in Connecticut; a Pennsylvania sharpshooter named Timothy Murphy fires a bullet that turns the tide of the war; and a Native American warrior called Han Yerry leads a rescue mission to starving soldiers at Valley Forge.
