Adams may be the driving force behind Congress, but the political savvy comes from Benjamin Franklin (Everhart), who sees that the dislike for Adams is holding them all back. Franklin persuades Adams that Richard Henry Lee (Ron Holgate) of Virginia, the wealthiest colony and leader of the South, should be the one to propose independence. Lee rides off to secure the support of his legislature, but not before indulging in some bragging about his venerable family - The Lees Of Old Virginia.
