EPISODE 03: Moses lets James report on Congress and after a British sailor is “tarred and feathered,” James learns about the ugliness of mob rule, when emotions get in the way of compassion. Sarah and Henri meet Abigail Adams and travel with her to bring supplies and pamphlets to the occupied city of Boston. Sarah immediately finds in Abigail a strong female role model to look up to.
HISTORICAL CONTENT: At the First Continental Congress, representatives of each colony meet as a group for the first time. Sam and John Adams argue that the Intolerable Acts are not just a New England problem, they are an “American problem.” The British shut down Boston Harbor to all trade and this further infuriates the colonists.
EMOTIONAL TAKEAWAY: Violence can get out of hand, no matter how noble the cause, and must never be used but as a last resort.
