Storyline

Jeremy Larkin, Isak Poole, Henry Abington, and Elizabeth Coates were members of "the Yankee Doodle Society", a rebel group based in Chester, Pennsylvania in 1777. Reporting directly to General Lafayette, the team operated as spies behind British lines. Jeremy was the son of Chester's Tory Mayor, who hid his political ideas behind a façade of disinterested pacifism. Elizabeth was a liberated woman ahead of her time, and Isak was an ex-slave. The brains of the group was Henry, a big fan of Benjamin Franklin (whom he resembled), and always able to invent whatever device or scheme the group needed to finish their missions.

Ahead of its time
15 February 2006 | by lahollySee all my reviews

As a history buff , I really enjoyed this short lived series. I wonder if it might have fared better if the powers that be had waited until 1976 to put it on.

The young(at that time) cast was excellent, especially Louis Gossett , Alex Henteloff, and Phillip Foulquet at Lafayette. It also featured some terrific guest appearances over its short run.(Brandon DeWilde, in one of his last appearances as Nathan Hale comes to mind.

Also Eric Braeden as a mad(as in crazy) Hessian officer(no typecasting there)Gary Lockwood as a friend of the Larkins who turned out to be a traitor, and Frank Converse as Jeremy's hero brother, who was killed off in the first episode. And who could forget Will Geer as the crusty mayor. If this comes around on DVD I think I'll buy it.
