Schama tells the fascinating story of the African-American slaves who chose to fight for Britain - and their freedom - in the American Revolutionary War. When the British tried to resist America's struggle for independence in 1776, they offered the slaves a deal: come and fight for us and we'll set you free. Schama tells the incredible story of the slaves who accepted this deal. This film depicts the lives of 3 remarkable characters, Englishman John Clarkson, a passionate advocate of the abolition of slavery, and two African men, Thomas Peters and David George, who escaped slavery and hardship to join Clarkson on an epic journey in search of their freedom.
