Born Fighting: EPISODE 2

Shaping America

Senator James Webb goes on a personal journey to trace the story of the Scots-Irish, from their exodus to the New World in the 1700s to their massive cultural and political influence on America today. See how their warrior ways helped the United States win the Revolutionary War and how their wanderlust opened up the frontiers. The tenacity that carried them through Civil War defeat and economic devastation, and the music, drinks, and prayers they carried with them became the lifeblood of America.
