The Deane From Groton

There were many "little known" heroes in the American Revolution. Silas Deane was one of those. Silas Deane worked with France to secure money and weapons and other resources for the Revolution. Silas Deane recruited the Marquis De Lafayette and Baron Von Stueben, who without either of them victory would have been even more questionable. After being accused of financial improprieties while in France, his life changed dramatically. His name was destroyed, his finances were destroyed, he was considered a traitor (for some period of time), and he died without ever recovering his good name. In the end, his name was cleared, but it took many years and his name never reached many of the history books where it rightfully belonged! Enjoy this Season 1 Episode 15, "The Deane From Groton".
