TODAY ONLIBERTY’S KIDS…Sarah: LOOK! A FARM! Moses: WE WON’T
BE STOPPING AT THAT FARM, SARAH.
THEY’RE SLAVES. Patrick Henry: I KNOW NOT
WHAT COURSE OTHERS MAY TAKE. BUT AS FOR ME, GIVE ME LIBERTY OR GIVE ME DEATH! Sarah: HMM… DEAREST MOTHER, THE MOOD IN THE COLONIES
HAS TURNED UGLY. PARLIAMENT HAS PLACED
THE PORT OF BOSTON UNDER BLOCKADE AS PUNISHMENT
FOR THE TEA PARTY. WITH THE HARBOR CLOSED
TO TRADE, THE SUBJECTS OF BOSTON ARE
IDLE AND SUFFER GREATLY. TENSIONS ARE ON THE RISE. DR. FRANKLIN’S
PRINTING PRESS IS WORKING
AROUND THE CLOCK TO KEEP UP WITH
ALL THESE EVENTS. MOSES! IT DID IT AGAIN! THIS OLD THING IS
A HUNK OF JUNK! UNH! HOW ARE WE
SUPPOSED TO GET OUT THE LATEST NEWS
FROM BOSTON IF OUR PRESS
KEEPS BREAKING DOWN? JAMES, THIS POOR OLD PRESS
IS READY FOR RETIREMENT. HOWEVER, I HAVE
JUST THE FIX. GREAT! WHAT DO YOU NEED? A WRENCH? A HAMMER? I’LL FETCH IT FOR YOU. A WAGON. A WHAT? A BIG, STURDY WAGON. I MADE AN OFFER
ON ANEWPRESS. WE JUST HAVE
TO PICK IT UP. GREAT! WHERE IS IT?
MARKET STREET? WILLIAMSBURG. WILLIAMSBURG?
WILLIAMSBURG, VIRGINIA? WE LEAVE AT
THE FIRST LIGHT OF DAY. BUT–BUT– BUT NOTHING. WE MUST HAVE
A DEPENDABLE PRESS. THE PEOPLE COUNT ON US
FOR THEIR NEWS. BESIDES,
YOU NEVER CAN TELL WHAT NEWS YOU’LL UNCOVER
IN A DIFFERENT COLONY. YES, BUT IS IT SAFE? I MEAN, FOR YOU? SLAVERY IS EVERYWHERE
IN VIRGINIA. IT’S NOT AT ALL
LIKE BOSTON, OR EVEN HERE
IN PENNSYLVANIA. THESE ARE DANGEROUS TIMES
FOR EVERYONE, AND I’M WILLING TO DO WHAT
I CAN FOR THE COMMON CAUSE. I WON’T BE WITHOUT
SOME PROTECTION. I HAVE THIS LETTER
FROM DR. FRANKLIN. IT ATTESTS THAT
I AM A FREE MAN. I CARRY IT WITH ME
ALWAYS. MOSES,
IF THE COLONIES HAD 10,000 MEN
AS BRAVE AS YOU, PARLIAMENT WOULDN’T
DARE MESS WITH US. SPEAKING OF MESS… RIGHT.
WHERE’S THE SOAP? YOU DON’T KNOW? WELL, LET’S SEE. I USED IT JUST
LAST SATURDAY. MORE LIKE LAST JANUARY. STILL WORKING?
AT THIS HOUR? SARAH, HENRI,
BIG NEWS. I’M GOING WITH MOSES
TO VIRGINIA TO BUY
A NEW PRINTING PRESS. AND LEAVE ME HERE
ALONE WITH HER? AND LEAVE ME HERE
ALONE WITH HIM? Both: I’M GOING WITH YOU! [HORSES NEIGHING] [BOTH GRUNTING] James: I HOPE THIS NEW PRESS
IS WORTH THE MONEY, MOSES. AS DR. FRANKLIN SAID, “A PENNY SAVED
IS A PENNY EARNED.” THIS PRESS WILL SAVE US
A VERY PRETTY PENNY. HOW MUCH LONGER TILL
WE GET TO WILLIAMSBURG? YEAH. I’M HUNGRY. YOU’RE ALWAYS HUNGRY. I HOPE WE GET THERE
IN TIME FOR THE SESSION OF
THE HOUSE OF BURGESSES. I WANT TO HEAR
PATRICK HENRY SPEAK. PATRICK WHO? PATRICK HENRY. HE’S A LAWYER
FROM VIRGINIA. HE WAS A DELEGATE
TO THE FIRST
CONTINENTAL CONGRESS, AND WHAT A SPEAKER! DON’T TELL ME THIS
PATRICK HENRY IS A REBEL. HE’S NOT A REBEL, SARAH.
HE’S A PATRIOT. HE WANTS
THE SOUTHERN COLONIES TO JOIN THE COMMON CAUSE
WITH NEW ENGLAND. WHY WOULD
A SUBJECT OF VIRGINIA CARE WHAT’S HAPPENING
IN MASSACHUSETTS? IT’S A COMPLETELY
DIFFERENT COUNTRY. WITH MEN
LIKE PATRICK HENRY, IT MIGHT JUST BECOME
ONE COUNTRY. LOOK! A FARM! WHOA! THOSE WORKERS WILL
KNOW HOW FAR IT IS
TO WILLIAMSBURG. WE WON’T BE STOPPING
AT THAT FARM, SARAH. WHY NOT? BECAUSE THOSE WORKERS
AREN’T JUST WORKERS. THEY’RE SLAVES. LET’S GO. Ben Franklin:
LADY PHILLIPS, HOW GRAND
TO SEE YOU AGAIN. DR. FRANKLIN,
YOU’RE LEAVING US? THE RUMOR IS TRUE,
LADY PHILLIPS. AS SOON AS I TIE UP
MY AFFAIRS HERE IN LONDON, I WILL RETURN
TO MY HOME. TO PHILADELPHIA.
TO AMERICA. OH, DOCTOR,
YOU WILL BE MISSED. BY MY FRIENDS, PERHAPS, BUT MY ENEMIES ARE
IN FAR GREATER NUMBERS. AND IF THEY SHED TEARS
UPON MY DEPARTURE, THEY SHALL BE
TEARS OF JOY. WHAT WORD HAVE YOU FROM
YOUR LOVELY DAUGHTER, SARAH? SHE’S OFF ON A TRIP
TO WILLIAMSBURG, WHICH IS THE CAPITAL
OF THE COLONY OF VIRGINIA,
I BELIEVE. DOES SHE SAY WHY? I HAVEN’T HAD A LETTER
IN SOME WEEKS NOW. SOMETHING ABOUT BUYING
A NEW PRINTING PRESS. I TAKE COMFORT KNOWING
SHE’S IN THE COMPANY
OF YOUR PEOPLE JAMES AND HENRI
AND YOUR MAJOR DOMO, MOSES. MOSES, YOU SAY? IS THERE SOMETHING WRONG? PERHAPS NOT. BUT PERHAPS SO. James: THIS MUST
BE WILLIAMSBURG. I SMELL HAM. OOH. I ALSO SMELL
MUTTON, ROAST BEEF,
PUDDING, AND PIE. I LOVE WILLIAMSBURG! HENRI, YOU’RE
PART BLOODHOUND. IT IS QUITE BEAUTIFUL. CIVILIZED. IT REMINDS ME OF
THE ENGLISH COUNTRYSIDE. SOLD! OH, MY GOODNESS!
IS THAT– YES, SARAH.
THE AUCTION BLOCK. THIS IS WHERE MY PEOPLE
ARE SOLD LIKE CATTLE TO THE HIGHEST BIDDER. I WAS SOLD
ON THE BLOCK IN CHARLESTOWN,
SOUTH CAROLINA, BUT THEY’RE
ALL THE SAME. IT’S BARBARIC. I CANNOT LOOK AT IT.
NOT ANOTHER SECOND. I WANT TO LEAVE
THIS PLACE. THE NEWSPAPER OFFICE IS
RIGHT ACROSS THE STREET. COME ON, MOSES. LET’S PICK UP
THE PRINTING PRESS
AND GET OUT OF HERE. NO, JAMES.
YOU’RE A JOURNALIST. YOU HAVE A JOB TO DO. I’LL GET
THE PRINTING PRESS. YOU GET YOURSELF OVER
TO THE HOUSE OF BURGESSES AND FIND OUT
THE LATEST NEWS. BUT– NO “BUTS.” EACH OF US
MUST DO HIS PART. IS IT SAFE HERE
FOR YOU, MOSES? AS LONG AS I HAVE
THIS LETTER, I’LL BE FINE. James: COME ON, HENRI. DO YOU WANT SOMETHING
TO EAT? NO. SUDDENLY, I’VE
LOST MY APPETITE. THAT’S STRANGE.
IT’S LOCKED. IN THE MIDDLE
OF THE DAY? HERE GOES! [GRUNTS] UP YOU GO! [GRUNTS] WHOA– AAH! AAH! OUCH! James:
WHERE IS EVERYBODY? GONE. GONE?
GONE WHERE? THERE IS NO MORE
HOUSE OF BURGESSES. THE EARL OF DUNMORE
SHUT IT DOWN. THE EARL OF WHO? THE EARL OF DUNMORE. HE’S THE ROYAL GOVERNOR
OF VIRGINIA. HE GOT MIGHTY MAD
AT THE ASSEMBLY, ESPECIALLY
MR. PATRICK HENRY, FOR SAYING VIRGINIA
SHOULD RAISE AN ARMY TO FIGHT WITH
THE BOSTON PEOPLE. NOW, THAT’S NEWS!
ARE YOU SURE? I HEAR EVERYTHING. RUMOR HAS IT, MR. HENRY’S GOING
TO SPEAK TO A CONVENTION IN RICHMOND.
ST. JOHN’S CHURCH. THAT’S FANTASTIC!
THANKS. WHAT IS YOUR NAME? OH, NO. I’VE SAID
TOO MUCH ALREADY. WAIT TILL MOSES
HEARS THIS. [GRUNTS] [SHIVERS] MOSES! BIG NEWS!
WE’VE GOTTA GO TO RICHMOND! THE EARL OF DUNMORE
SENT THE ASSEMBLY HOME, BUT THEY’RE GOING TO MEET
ANYWAY IN RICHMOND. PATRICK HENRY’S GOING
TO MAKE AN IMPORTANT SPEECH. THIS IS NEWS. WE’D BETTER GET GOING. HYAH. WHAT’S WRONG, MOSES? THAT’S WHAT’S WRONG. HE LOOKS SCARED. HE’S MY BROTHER. HE’S YOUR BROTHER? HIS NAME IS CATO. WE WERE SEPARATED
WHEN WE WERE YOUNG, BUT I’D KNOW HIM
ANYWHERE. WE HAVE
TO DO SOMETHING. YES, BUT WHAT? WE CAN BUY
HIS FREEDOM. WITH WHAT? WE SPENT ALL OUR MONEY
ON THE PRINTING PRESS. Sarah:
I HAVE SOME COINS. I’LL SELL
THIS HORSE AND WAGON AND CARRY THE PRESS HOME
ON MY BACK IF I MUST, BUT I’LL NOT SIT HERE
WHILE CATO IS SOLD LIKE A SACK OF FLOUR. HE’S A CAPTURED RUNAWAY. HIGH-SPIRITED, SO HE’LL HAVE
TO BE WATCHED CAREFULLY. WHO’LL START THE BIDDING? 50 POUNDS! I HAVE 50 POUNDS.
DO I HEAR 60? Moses: 60 POUNDS! I HAVE 60.
DO I HEAR 70 POUNDS? STOP THE AUCTION!
THIS IS MOST PECULIAR. YOU AREN’T ALLOWED
TO BID AT AUCTION. MY OFFER STANDS, SIR. 60 POUNDS, CASH MONEY. THIS IS OUTRAGEOUS!
THE NERVE! THE MAN YOU ARE SELLING
IS MY BROTHER, CATO. I AM A FREE MAN AND HAVE
AS MUCH RIGHT TO BID AS ANY. HE SPEAKS
THE TRUTH, SIR. QUIET, CHILD. IT’S BAD ENOUGH
I’M TALKIN’ TO HIM. I’LL NOT STOOP
TO DISCUSSING MY AFFAIRS WITH A GIRL TO BOOT. OOH, I’D LIKE TO
GIVE HIM THE BOOT. MOSES IS A FREE MAN. SHOW HIM
YOUR LETTER, MOSES. IT’S FROM MY EMPLOYER,
DR. BENJAMIN FRANKLIN. I DON’T NEED
NO READIN’ LESSONS. BEN FRANKLIN’S NAME
DON’T MEAN NOTHIN’ IN VIRGINIA.
HE’S A PENNSYLVANIA MAN. IF YOU BELONG TO HIM,
I SUGGEST YOU GIT. AND I MEAN NOW! MOSES, NO!
STAY CALM. GET HIM OUT OF HERE! [GRUNTS] MY BID STANDS AT 50 POUNDS! 50 POUNDS GOING ONCE,
GOING TWICE… SOLD TO FOREMAN HARRISON
OF THE ABERNATHY PLANTATION, RICHMOND, VIRGINIA. [SIGHS] RICHMOND? THAT’S WHERE PATRICK HENRY
IS SPEAKING. COME ON! [SIGHS] MOSES, CATO WAS SOLD TO
THE ABERNATHY PLANTATION. IN RICHMOND. WE ARE GOING TO RICHMOND,
AREN’T WE, MOSES? AS IF WE HAD WINGS. James: THERE’S
ST. JOHN’S CHURCH. THAT’S WHERE MR. HENRY’S
GOING TO SPEAK. YOU STAY HERE AND
LISTEN TO HIS SPEECH
WHILE I FIND CATO. THE ABERNATHY PLANTATION
IS JUST OUTSIDE OF TOWN. WE PASSED IT COMING IN. I’LL DRAW
LESS ATTENTION ON FOOT. MEET CATO AND ME
HERE AFTER DARK. PLEASE LET US GO
WITH YOU, MOSES. THIS IS FAMILY, SARAH. I HAVE TO DO THIS
FOR MY BROTHER. NOW, MAKE SURE
YOU GET DOWN EVERY WORD
PATRICK HENRY SAYS. THE COLONIES NEED TO HEAR
A MAN LIKE MR. HENRY. WE WON’T
LET YOU DOWN, MOSES. GOOD. ARE YOU GOING
TO JUST LET HIM GO? [GASPS] JAMES, LOOK!
HIS LETTER! WELL, IT DOESN’T
TAKE 3 OF US TO COPY DOWN
A SPEECH. AND I CAN BARELY
WRITE MY NAME. TRUE, BUT YOU ARE
A WORLD CLASS SNEAK. HENRI, TAIL MOSES. KEEP YOUR DISTANCE
SO HE DOESN’T KNOW
HE’S BEING FOLLOWED. BUT AT THE FIRST SIGN
OF TROUBLE, FLY BACK HERE
AND GET US. DO YOU UNDERSTAND?CERTAINEMENT!MAYBE I CAN’T
WRITE ENGLISH, BUT I UNDERSTAND IT
PLENTY. [CROWD MURMURING] WHAT ARE YOU DOING
WITH A PENCIL? 2 HEADS ARE BETTER
THAN ONE, ESPECIALLY WHEN ONE
OF THE HEADS IS YOURS. BUT YOU’RE NOT
THE JOURNALIST. SHH.
MR. PATRICK HENRY. THE QUESTION
BEFORE THE HOUSE IS ONE OF AWFUL MOMENT
TO THIS COUNTRY. FOR MY OWN PART, I CONSIDER IT
AS NOTHING LESS THAN A QUESTION
OF FREEDOM OR SLAVERY. THERE IS NO LONGER
ANY ROOM FOR HOPE. IF WE WISH TO BE FREE, IF WE MEAN TO PRESERVE
THOSE PRIVILEGES FOR WHICH WE HAVE BEEN
SO LONG CONTENDING, WE MUST FIGHT! I REPEAT IT, SIRS. WE MUST FIGHT! AN APPEAL TO ARMS
AND TO THE GOD OF HOSTS IS ALL THAT IS LEFT US. THEY TELL US WE ARE WEAK, UNABLE TO COPE WITH
SO FORMIDABLE AN ADVERSARY. BUT WHEN SHALL
WE BE STRONGER? WILL IT BE NEXT WEEK
OR NEXT YEAR? WE ARE NOT WEAK. WE ARE 3 MILLION PEOPLE ARMED IN THE HOLY CAUSE
OF LIBERTY! GENTLEMEN MAY CRY,
“PEACE! PEACE!” BUT THERE IS NO PEACE. THE WAR IS ACTUALLY BEGUN. THE NEXT GALE
THAT SWEEPS FROM BOSTON WILL BRING
TO OUR EARS THE CLASH
OF RESOUNDING ARMS. OUR BRETHREN
ARE ALREADY IN THE FIELD. WHY STAND WE HERE IDLE? IS LIFE SO DEAR,
OR PEACE SO SWEET, AS TO BE PURCHASED
AT THE PRICE OF CHAINS AND SLAVERY? FORBID IT,
ALMIGHTY GOD. I KNOW NOT WHAT COURSE
OTHERS MAY TAKE. BUT AS FOR ME, GIVE ME LIBERTY
OR GIVE ME DEATH! Sarah:
“GIVE ME LIBERTY…” James:
“OR GIVE ME DEATH.” [GASPS] MOSES! WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE?
ARE YOU CRAZY? I CAME TO GET YOU. TO TAKE YOU WITH ME
TO PHILADELPHIA. NO. IT’S TOO RISKY. I’M NOT
LEAVING YOU HERE. DON’T WORRY ABOUT ME. I HAVE A PLAN. A PLAN? THERE IS A RUMOR–
A STRONG RUMOR– FROM SOURCES
THAT ARE NEVER WRONG. WHAT IS IT? LORD DUNMORE IS GOING
TO OFFER FREEDOM TO ANY SLAVE
WHO JOINS THE BRITISH TO PUT DOWN
THE REBELLION IN BOSTON. BUT THAT’S JUST TALK. I’M OFFERING YOU
A WAY OUT. YOU’RE OFFERING ME
A LIFE ON THE RUN AS A FUGITIVE. I WANT FREEDOM. THE FREEDOM
EVERY MAN SHOULD HAVE. I’LL NOT SPEND MY LIFE
LOOKING OVER MY SHOULDER, WAITING FOR
THE BOUNTY HUNTERS TO DRAG ME BACK HERE
IN CHAINS. BUT… MOSES, I LOVE YOU. YOU ARE A BRAVE MAN
FOR COMING HERE. BUT I WILL NOT LIVE MY LIFE
AS IF I WERE A CRIMINAL, WHEN THE CRIME IS BEING
COMMITTED AGAINST ME. IF I CAN WIN MY FREEDOM
BY HELPING THE BRITISH, SO BE IT. AT LEAST I WILL BE
THE MASTER OF MY OWN FATE. ARE YOU SURE? I’VE NEVER BEEN
MORE SURE. IT’S LATE.
WHAT’S ALL THAT RACKET? YOU! GET HIM, BOYS! [GASPS] MOSES! I’VE GOT TO GET
JAMES AND SARAH. Sarah: WHAT DOES IT
ALL MEAN, JAMES? IS VIRGINIA GOING
TO SEND AN ARMY TO BOSTON? NOT UNLESS FIGHTING
BREAKS OUT. BUT THANKS
TO PATRICK HENRY, AT LEAST VIRGINIA
WILL HAVE AN ARMY. THE CONVENTION VOTED FUNDS
TO BUY WEAPONS AND UNIFORMS AND HIRE OFFICERS. THIS IS
A GREAT DAY. Henri:
JAMES! SARAH! HENRI? [GRUNTING] JAMES, SARAH, QUICK. MOSES HAS BEEN TAKEN
BY THE PLANTATION MEN. NO! QUICK, THE WAGON! [NEIGHING] HYAH! WE’RE COMING, MOSES! WHO IS IT AT THIS HOUR
OF THE NIGHT? YES? HOW MAY I HELP YOU? WE’RE LOOKING
FOR OUR FRIEND. MOSES.
HIS NAME IS MOSES. LET HIM GO! WHAT MAKES YOU THINK
I HAVE YOUR FRIEND, THIS MOSES CHARACTER? I SAW YOUR FOREMAN HARRISON
TAKE HIM PRISONER! THE RUNAWAY CAUGHT
STIRRING UP TROUBLE
IN MY SLAVE QUARTERS? THAT’S YOUR FRIEND? YES, SIR.
HE IS OUR FRIEND. ONLY MOSES IS NOT
A RUNAWAY. HE’S A FREE MAN.
SEE FOR YOURSELF. WHAT IS THIS? THAT IS A LETTER
FROM DR. BENJAMIN FRANKLIN OF PHILADELPHIA. I AM AWARE
OF DR. FRANKLIN, BUT WHY IS THIS
ANY OF HIS BUSINESS? BECAUSE AS A MAN OF HONOR,
YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO KEEP THAT WHICH
DOESN’T BELONG TO YOU. AND THIS MOSES BELONGS
TO DR. FRANKLIN? MOSES BELONGS
TO HIMSELF. [PANTING] IS EVERYTHING IN ORDER,
MR. ABERNATHY? I HEARD A WAGON ROLL UP. THE AFRICAN NAMED MOSES.
WHERE IS HE? I LOCKED HIM
IN THE BLOCK HOUSE. HIS RUNNING DAYS
ARE OVER. RELEASE HIM IMMEDIATELY. RELEASE HIM? BUT– NOW, HARRISON. OUR GUESTS HERE
HAVE A LONG RIDE
AHEAD OF THEM, WHICH I SUGGEST
YOU EMBARK ON
POST HASTE. SO YOU BELIEVE US? IF DR. FRANKLIN
IS IN THE BUSINESS
OF HIRING AFRICANS, THAT’S HIS CONCERN,
NOT MINE. BE OFF WITH YOU! BUT TELL DR. FRANKLIN HE’S PLAYING
WITH LIGHTNING AGAIN. HIS RADICAL NOTIONS
ABOUT SLAVERY MIGHT
FLY IN PHILADELPHIA, BUT HE’LL SET
THE WORLD ON FIRE IF HE TRIES TO
EXPORT THEM TO VIRGINIA. YOU MAKE SURE
YOU TELL HIM THAT. OH, WE WILL, SIR.
WE WILL. WE’LL BE SURE
TO TELL HIM. AND THEN
PATRICK HENRY SAID, “AS FOR ME,
GIVE ME LIBERTY
OR GIVE ME DEATH.” THAT’S
A MIGHTY FINE SPEECH. GOOD JOB, JAMES. IT’S A BUNCH
OF HOGWASH. HOGWASH? SARAH,
IT WAS GREATNESS. ALL THAT TALK
OF FREEDOM AND LIBERTY? LOOK WHAT HAPPENED
TO MOSES. AND WHAT ABOUT CATO? YES, MOSES.
WHAT ABOUT CATO? LOOK! “FREEDOM FOR SLAVES
WHO TAKE UP ARMS AGAINST
THE COLONISTS.” Sarah: IT’S SIGNED
BY LORD DUNMORE. “FOR HIS MAJESTY
KING GEORGE III.” CATO IS TAKING
HIS OWN PATH TO FREEDOM. IF IT’S GOD’S WILL,
HE’LL SUCCEED. I BELIEVE
IT IS GOD’S WILL. I BELIEVE SOMEDAY
ALL MY PEOPLE WILL DRINK FROM
THE CUP OF LIBERTY, JUST LIKE
PATRICK HENRY SAID. Sarah: DEAREST MOTHER, WE HAVE RETURNED SAFELY
FROM VIRGINIA, BUT NOT WITHOUT
TERRIBLE FRIGHT. AND NOT WITHOUT THE BLINDERS
BEING LIFTED FROM MY EYES. WHATEVER UNITY MR. PATRICK HENRY
WAS ABLE TO ACHIEVE BY BRINGING
THE COLONY OF VIRGINIA INTO THE CAUSE
WITH NEW ENGLAND, THIS LAND SHALL
REMAIN DIVIDED AS LONG AS SLAVERY
REMAINS THE LAW. IT IS AN AWFUL PRACTICE, DEGRADING TO THE SLAVE
AND TO THE MASTER. IT’S AN EVIL THAT SHOULD BE
STAMPED FROM THE WORLD WHEREVER IT LIVES. I’VE LEARNED THERE ARE
MANY PATHS TO FREEDOM. MOSES TOOK ONE PATH–
HIS BROTHER CATO ANOTHER– JUST AS ENGLAND
AND THE COLONIES ARE TRAVELING
DIFFERENT PATHS. MY GREAT FEAR IS THESE PATHS
ARE DESTINED TO COLLIDE. FREEDOM WILL NOT
COME CHEAPLY. IT NEVER DOES. YOUR LOVING DAUGHTER, SARAH. ♪ I’M LOOKIN’ AT LIFE
