Part 2 here. *Winner of the 2010 NCMC (North Carolina Museums Council) award for "Best Historical Film".

These are selected scenes from "Friends in Liberty," a production by the North Carolina Museum of History. "Friends in Liberty" follows the experiences of 14-year-old Hugh McDonald and his friend, Anne Taylor. The film is based on the original journal of McDonald, the son of Scottish Loyalists, who joined the Sixth N.C. Regiment of the Continental Army in 1776. The fictitious character Anne Taylor gives us a girl's view of life during the Revolutionary War as she struggles with increasing responsibilities at home after her brother Samuel joins the militia.
