EagleVision Productions, Inc. is in the research and development stage of producing a one-hour documentary covering the events following the Declaration of Independence from Great Britain. Public and private preparations are already underway to mark the 250th anniversary of the independence of the United States of America, what will be officially known as the "Semiquincentennial," on July 4, 2026.
In this documentary entitled, Road to Liberty 1776-1777: The New York/New Jersey Campaign, we will focus on the events surrounding the first year of the American Revolution – a truly remarkable story of perseverance. Never again would the battle for American Independence be so vulnerable and so close to defeat as it was in those months leading up to Christmas 1776 and the Battle of Trenton.
The story of unsung heros and untold events during this period of the American Revolution will be told through quotes from letters and diaries of patriots who fought for our liberty, read by actors on and off screen, and will be used with illustrations, paintings, maps, artifacts, military re-enactors, and location footage to bring the history of the times to life and provide a visual background for the story.
This television presentation also will be divided into vignettes depicting some of the major participants on both sides, some little-known stories that capture the day-to-day struggles for liberty, and the retreats and battles that were fought during the New York/New Jersey Campaign. These vignettes will be edited as stand-alone online segments for easy access by teachers for educational purposes and the
general viewing audience interested in this crucial period of our nation.
As we prepare to celebrate our 250th anniversary in 2026, this is a story of survival and triumph that needs to be re-told for a 21st century audience.
