Americans need their story!
The bald truth of the matter is that we don’t get enough of it. A handful of major feature films have been made about the American Revolution and very very few about the formative years from Jamestown to Bunker Hill. America, even today, is still very much about those five generations who braved the New World in the fearful decades between Roanoke and Lexington.
They were a sturdy lot of men and women who dreamed of a city built on a hill. Their struggle to create that city and to sustain a republic dedicated to the rare notion of individual freedom and “unalienable rights” has outlived them, but there’s a side of their story we don’t often study: what made them strong enough to fight?
Courage, New Hampshire is the chronicle of a shire town on the western border of New Hampshire. In those days, the inn keeper was often the justice of the peace as well, and neighborly disputes were moderated at the local public house or tavern. Starting with the winter of 1770, we will be telling the seasonal story of the great events of the era, as seen from a country town distant from the colonial capitals. Each new season of this decade, will take the audience on the road to revolution, along with the citizens of “Courage.”
You can help us tell that story by joining the colony.
..Because one or two movies every twenty years isn’t enough! We want a dramatic series — something you can watch every week.
Let’s get started!
