A tour through the world of the colonial farmer in the year 1777, when most of the 13 original colonies were still one vast forest.

Historian Burt Kummerow shares his extensive and enthusiastic knowledge of the time in a stroll through an authentic recreation of a Chesapeake farm of the period, and the people who worked it.
