Virginia beaches include several that are world famous for various reasons. You can pick the action packed shores at Virginia Beach or watch the four-legged residents of Assateague Island. Over 3300 miles of shoreline are available to vacation visitors to the State of Virginia.

Virginia Beach This is the largest and most populous of the Virginia beaches. People come to enjoy the three mile Boardwalk with its games, concessions, arcades and food. Numerous hotels overlook the beach and shoreline where there is swimming, surfing, sailing as well as sand activities such as volleyball, sand soccer and kite-flying. Miles of walking and hiking trails are available, not only on the beach and Boardwalk, but the First Landing State Park which winds through the wetlands along Broad Bay. A short distance away by tram is the Back Bay Wildlife Refuge and False Cape State Park.

Back in Virginia Beach, many of the entertainment programs are free and aimed at families. The beaches at Virginia Beach are also free. If the beach activities are too tame for you, the Virginia Beach Oceanfront Waterpark and the go-karts at Motor World will liven things up a bit. Fascinating educational exhibits are available for viewing at the Virginia Beach Aquarium & Marine Science Center.

A small side trip to Mount Trashmore, to the Cape Henry Lighthouses or to the Old Coast Guard Station adds local color to your visit.

You may also enjoy a more secluded beach experience at North End Beach and Sandbridge just to the south of Virginia Beach. Some of the ocean-front houses there can be rented by the week.

Eastern ShoreVirginias Eastern Shore is home to three well-known beaches. The peninsula is reached via the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel where the Kiptopeke State Park is known for its annual birding festival. Because Chesapeake Bay has calm waters and there is a short nature trail, this is the ideal beach for families with young children to use one of the many camping sites.

Sister islands, Chincoteague and Assateague are famous for the herd of wild ponies which reside on Assateague except during the annual two day drive. Chincoteague has no beachfront, but Assateague, reached by a short causeway between the two islands has wide beaches, virtually untouched and miles of trails.

NorfolkOcean View Beach at Norfolk stretches for eight miles along Chesapeake Bay. The four wide city beaches feature gentle surf, lifeguards, and picnicking facilities. Visitors can rent kayaks, paddleboats, jet skis and sailboats. In addition to the beach activities, visitors to Norfolk can visit museums such as Hampton Roads Naval Museum, the National Maritime Center and the USS Wisconsin, and Nauticus.

HamptonIn addition to 12 deep water marinas, Hampton is home to Buckroe Beach, a favorite for windsurfing visitors.

River BeachesVirginia also has several river beaches where the tributaries flow into Chesapeake Bay or into the Atlantic Ocean. Fishermen particularly appreciate these beaches, because they can catch both freshwater and saltwater fish in the same area. An outstanding river beach is Chippokes Plantation State Park with two miles of beach along the James River.

Find a beach vacation within reach. Here are several with drive times under five hours.

Squinting over endless sparkling water, the gulls swooping in for a snack; treading in gentle waves that tickle the shore; brushing sand from a peanut-butter sandwich; smelling that distinctive aroma of sun block; taking a long sunset walk, your feet sinking as you avoid sand castles that seem to disintegrate as soon as theyre built.

You dont have to drive all the way to the Jersey shore, Cape Cod or Myrtle Beach to experience the wonderful sensations of a lazy day at the beach. Theres big water much closer to home. Sand beaches on Lake Erie, the closest of the five Great Lakes, can be reached by car in as little as 2 1/2 hours from the Pittsburgh area, short enough for a day trip and interesting enough to inspire a longer trip along the shorelines in Pennsylvania, Ohio, New York and even southern Ontario, Canada. There are as many days worth of beaches and charming resort towns to explore as you can spare.

OK, the Great Lakes are fresh-water, not salty like the Atlantic Ocean. So theres no salty smelland you probably dont get as sticky when you swim in a Great Lake. You also dont have to worry about a shark attack (there are none) or a jellyfish sting. Waves, too, are more family-friendly, gentlerunless, at least on the southern shores of Lake Erie, theres a big wind coming from the northwest that can drum up 10- and 12-foot waves.

Which brings up another lake-versus-ocean topic: There is surfing on Lake Erie and the other lakes. Insiders understand the conditions that can create surfable waves on these vast, inland fresh-water seas. Info:

Lake Erie is getting cleaner, notes Jane Beathard, a spokeswoman at the Ohio Department of Natural Resources. Lake Eries 9,910-square-mile surface area makes it the 11th largest lake in the world. Its also the most shallow of the Great Lakes (average depth 62 feet), and its the warmest. The warmth combined with high nutrient levels means Lake Erie also is a fine fishery. Perhaps the most important fact: Lake Eries shoreline is a whopping 871 miles long.

From our Southwestern Pennsylvania neighborhood, the most obvious way to Lake Erie is a beeline north on Interstate 79, a jog left of the city of Erie and a right onto the naturally occurring peninsula of Presque Isle State Park (translation from the French: presque isle means almost an island; scientific research has suggested that the peninsula moves one-half mile eastward each century, due to the forces of wind and water). Its a gorgeous day-use state park offering 10 guarded beaches that are open from 10 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. from Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day. Some have views of Eries industrial shoreline while others have views of the horizon, interrupted only by ships passing in the distance and splashing kids and adults close to shore. Each guarded beach has at least some of these amenities: parking, concession stands, bathrooms and changing areas. Other attractions include miles of trails for hikers and bikers, a 13.5-mile flat-loop multipurpose trail around the park thats particularly good for in-line skating. And then theres Presque Isles acclaimed sunset. Its pretty incredible, says Miranda Crotsley, environmental-education-specialist supervisor at Presque Isle. Something about the way the peninsula juts out into the lake gives Sunset Point, near Beach 10, a perfect, uninterrupted view.

People do come from all over to catch the sunset, Crotsley says.

Every Wednesday night through July 27, the Sunset Concert Series is presented on Beach 10 from 6:30 to 9 p.m., rain or shine. Featured acts include Mambo, Bruce Johnston, Jazz Trio and Sam Highman.

Other features of special interest include the historic Presque Isle Lighthouse, a 74-foot tower built in 1872 that flashes a white light. Nature lovers can enjoy the Isle, too. The peninsulas slow eastward movement has created a fascinating and diverse landscape that works as a natural laboratory for watching geological forces in motion.

At Stull Interpretive Center (817/833-0351) near Barracks Beach (Beach 1), exhibits show the way the sand spit is continuously shaped. Also there are displays of the birds (more than 320 species have been recorded) and other flora and fauna of this special region. Info: 814/833-7424 or

Just in case you cant bear to leave our Keystone State, theres another public beach on Lake Erie: Freeport Beach in North East Township (Halli Reid Park, Freeport Road-Route 89; township office, 814/725-8606). For swimming and picnicking, try the nearby North East Marina (814/725-8244,, operated by the state Fish and Boat Commission. And this is wine country: Five wineries and their vineyards are in the township (Info: 814/725-8606).

Want to be on a real island? Head northwest to Ohio, where you can board ferries to several islands on Lake Erie. Kelleys Islandat more than 4 square miles, the largest American island on Lake Eriecan be reached by a 20-minute ferry ride (419/798-9763, from a dock in Marblehead, Ohio.

Kelleys Island, part of Lake Erie Islands State Park, is quieter and more family-oriented than its neighbor town Put-in-Bay on South Bass Island, a popular summer resort. Kelleys Island has a swimming beach, six miles of hiking trails, summer nature programs, boating, fishing and campgrounds. Info:, or You dont actually have to leave Marblehead to get to a beachOhios East Harbor State Park on Marblehead peninsula contains the state systems largest campground and a 1,500-foot-long swimming beach. Info: 419/734-4424,

For an even more exotic island adventure via Ohio, go to Canada: Pelee Island in Lake Erie is the southernmost point on Canadas mainland, in Ontario province. A ferry runs May through September from Sandusky to Pelee Island; be sure to call the ferry service at 800/661-2220 or 519/724-2115 when planning your trip. The island boasts a host of fun and interesting sights and activities, including an organic farm; a winery; nature reserves with rare species, including the blue racer snake; a restored 1833 lighthouse; great bird-watching, excellent fishing; and miles of beaches. Info: 866/889-5203,, or

Back to Earthor the Ohio shoretraveling east toward Erie, you might take sample dips on beaches along the coast such as Century Park and Lakeview Beach in Lorain County. Or stop for a swim ingasp!Cleveland. Its an urban beach experience at Cleveland Lakefront State Park. Three swimming beachesEuclid Beach, 650 feet with a scenic observation pier; 900-foot Villa Angela, with bathhouse, scenic boardwalk and fitness trail; and adjacent Wildwood Park, which has a concession standrun along the Lake Erie shoreline. You can bike along a mile-long path between Euclid Beach and Villa Angela, and another half-mile to Wildwood. Info: 216/881-8141,

The shore goes on and on. Traveling east, shoreline highlights include Headlands Beach State Park near Mentor, Ohio, with its mile-long natural sand beach and, thanks to long-ago glacier activity when this was the continental East Coast, its dunes are inhabited by plant species typically found only on the Atlantic seaboard. Recreational opportunities include hiking, fishing, a childrens playground and a sand beach amenable to beach-volleyball games. Headlands Dunes Nature Preserve at the east end of the park is a fine example of Lake Erie beach and dune communities in Ohio. Along the southern end of the park is Mentor Marsh State Nature Preserve, a National Natural Landmark with 644 acres of marsh-swamp-forest that includes a 5-mile hiking trail. Next to that is the 450-acre Mentor Lagoons Nature Preserve and Marina, the states newest nature preserve with more than five miles of nature trail and 1 1/2 miles of wild beachMentor Marsh Lagoons Beacha chance to see what Lake Eries shoreline would looked like if it had remained untouched. Info: 216/881-8141,

Geneva State Park has a beautiful 300-foot-long sand beach, and fishing and boating. You can enjoy the back-to-nature experience of camping there, or stay in style in the parks new Lodge at Geneva, operated by Ashtabula County, a lodge and conference center with a panoramic view of the lake, full-service restaurant and more than 100 rooms. Info: 800/801-9982, 440/466-8400,

For more action, the lodge is within a short walk of the resort town of Geneva on the Lake, which calls itself Ohios oldest resort. Summer activities include lakefront concerts, amusement-park rides on the entertainment strip and local winery tours (there are 17 wineries in Ashtabula County). Info: 800/862-9948,

The Lake Erie shoreline knows no boundaries. In other words: Its also in New York state, where youll find a few spots of sand before you get to Buffalo. Near Dunkirk, N.Y., is Lake Erie State Park, where high bluffs overlooking the lake afford breathtaking views of the lake, and migrating birds stop before they take off across the lake. The shoreline is more than three-quarters of a mile long; options include camping, hiking and a playground, among other amenities. Info: 716/792-9214,

Continuing northwest on the other side of Dunkirk is Evangola State Park, with an arc-shaped shoreline and natural sand beach edged by low shale cliffs. If you need a break from the water, theres camping, picnicking, baseball and soccer fields and tennis and basketball courts. Info: 716/549-1802,

The coast of Lake Erie takes a hairpin curve near Buffalo, where you can cross the Peace Bridge into Canada at the mouth of the Niagara River and explore the opposite shores of Lake Erie. Port Colborne, Ontario, a town of 19,000 thats about 30 minutes drive from Buffalo, is at the southern terminus of the Welland Canal and was built around the fishing and marine industry. The city also promotes its quaint charms and summer fun: golf courses, marinas and water sports, as well as events like a waterfront festival with tall ships, fireworks and heritage displays in August. Info: 905/835-2900,

Beaches here include: Sherkston Shores, which calls itself the ultimate beach resort, has more than 2 1/2 miles of sand beach, including Wyldewood Beach, and lots of recreation, such as mini-golf, a giant water slide and horseback riding. On Nickel Beach, with more than a mile of white sand, theres swimming, windsurfing, picnic areas and a concession stand. Other beaches include Centennial (Cedar Bay) Beach, which has an on-site washroom, and Long Beach in the Long Beach Conservation Area on Lakeshore Road, Wainfleet, which has an admission charge.

Then theres that other lake. From Buffalo, you could take a whole new tactic and head north to the next-nearest Great Lake: Lake Ontario. Although its the smallest of the Great Lakes in surface area, Lake Ontario is the second deepest, with an average depth of 283 feet. The name means beautiful lake in Iroquois, and its largely rural shoreline (except for a few large urban areas like Toronto) hosts many scenic resort areas. Lake Ontario is 325 feet below Lake Erie, not far from the base of Niagara Falls, so to get to Lake Ontario, you have to pass this Natural Wonder of the World. True, Niagara Falls is no place to swim, but it is awe-inspiring.

On the Canadian side as you head north, Lake Ontario makes its first appearance near the lovely Victorian town of Niagara-on-the-Lake, home of the Shaw (theater) Festival and many historic monuments and historic sites. A swimmable beach, however, can be rare on these shoresLake Ontario is usually very cold. Info: 905/468-1950.

If youre going to Canada, have two forms of identification, at least one with a photo ID and a proof of citizenship, such as a passport or birth certificate. Resident aliens must have a residency card. Have birth certificates for each child in the vehicle. If traveling with a child who is not in your immediate family, have a note or proof that the child has permission to cross the border with you.

A popular site for outdoor recreation is Port Dalhousie, pronounced de-lucy, near St. Catharines, a quaint old village about 20 minutes from Niagra-on-the-Lake with harbors, marinas and a beachfront mainly promoted as a place to walk, jog or swim. Info: 905/937-4783,

If you head west, youll find one of the best Lake Ontario swimming areas: Fifty Point Conservation Area in Stoney Creek, near Hamilton, Ontario. Some human intervention has created one of the warmest and cleanest beaches on the western end of Lake Ontario. Facilities include changing rooms, campgrounds, full marina facilities and the Landing Restaurant. The fishing is good, too: Try salmon fishing in Lake Ontario; charters are available. Info: 905/525-2187,

If you stay in the States, there is a string of state parks along the shores of Lake Ontario as you travel across the top of western New York toward Rochester. These include Fort Niagara, Four Mile Creek and Lakeside Beach (no swimming allowed) state parks, each with a variety of outdoor activities and amenities. Only Hamlin Beach State Park in Hamlin, N.Y., promotes swimming in the lake, with its clear-water, sandy beaches and a bluff area known as Devils Nose. Info: 585/964-2462,

These destinationsfrom Marblehead, Ohio, in the west; to St. Catharines, Ontario, in the north; to Hamlin, N.Y., in the eastmay feel like another world. But you can reach these exotic localesincluding wonderful beaches on sparkling endless waterin less time than it takes to get to most parts of the Atlantic Coast. Theres a reason these big bodies of water are called Great Lakes.

Even Closer to Home: Beaches on Little Waters

An afternoon at the beach? No sweat. Just point your vehicle in almost any direction from Pittsburgh and be basking on a sandy shore in an hour or two.

Lake Arthur, a 3,225-acre lake in Moraine State Park (225 Pleasant Valley Road, near Portersville, Butler County; 724/368-8811, has two swimming beaches: Pleasant Valley Day Beach on the south shore is a 1,200-foot-long turf and sand beach; and Lakeview Beach on the north shore is a 550-foot sand beach. Lifeguards at Lakeview Beach through Labor Day, showers, changing facilities and food concessions are at both beaches.

Go a little farther north, and you can swim in a 150-acre spring-fed glacier-formed lake: Sandy Lake (off Franklin Road, Stoneboro, Mercer County; Info: 724/376-3541). Its privately owned, but accessible for a small fee. Amenities include four diving boards, docks and boat launches for fishing or waterskiing, changing rooms and a small concession area.

Raccoon Creek State Park (3000 State Route 18, Hookstown, Beaver County; 724/899-2200, includes 101-acre Raccoon Lake, with an 800-foot, handicapped-accessible sand and turf beach thats lifeguarded to Labor Day; bathhouse and refreshments nearby.

Laurel Hill State Park (1454 Laurel Hill Park Road, Jefferson and Middlecreek townships, Somerset County; 814/445-7725, has a 1,200-foot sandy beach on its 63-acre Laurel Hill Lake, which is surrounded by pristine state forest lands. The beach is lifeguarded through Labor Day, and theres a snack bar nearby.

Crooked Creek Lake (7 miles south of Kittanning on Route 66, Bethel Township., Armstrong County; 724/763-2764, 724/76-3161, is operated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The lake has a sandy peninsula beach at Tunnelville.

Our Town

Residents, as well as visitors staying at the community’s many fine hotels and motels, can be in Manhattan in as little as 20 minutes via express bus. Or they quickly can be on their way to other points in via the New Jersey Turnpike or State Route 3, both of which pass through the town.

And just across the Hackensack River, a mile away, is the area’s sports and entertainment center, The Meadowlands, home of the Giants, the Jets, concerts, circuses, ice shows, weekly flea market; and the Meadowlands Race Track.

Location! Location! Location! What makes Secaucus great for residents and visitors also makes it great for business. Secaucus is the corporate home of many major businesses and a distribution center serving Manhattan and Northern New Jersey. Its proximity to New York offers quick delivery.

This distribution center, cleverly separated from most of the town’s residential areas, has spawned the other activity for which the community was once well known – outlet shopping. Outlets have greatly deminished in number. However, along with the manufacturers’ outlets, you’ll find the true warehouse outlets, where the store’s in the front and racks of clothes are behind. Periodically the storehouses themselves are opened for that shopper’s dream, a real warehouse sale!

The town has not neglected it’s traditional business center, which residents call The Plaza. Flowers are pridefully planted in park areas in the center of town, where a beautification program was undertaken a few year’s ago. There, businesses thrive, many in the hands of local families who have served their customers for generations.

Harmon Meadow, at the eastern side of Secaucus, has a pleasant town square atmosphere. There, you’ll find many restaurants, some shops, a number of the major hotels, an attactive multiplex cinema and the Meadowlands Exposition Center. Nearby are the convenient big box stores that draw thousands of shoppers.

Secaucus has also become a communications hub, home of NBA Entertainment (and NBA draft), Major League Baseball Network, MY Channel 9 and news bureaus for other networks.

Sports and recreation abound for town residents. There’s a swim center for summer and an ice rink for winter and a Recreation Center for year round activities. There’s a soccer field and a roller hockey rink. There’s a boat ramp into the Hackensack River. There are gyms and fields and organized teams for virtually all outdoor and indoor sports.

Nature is preserved in areas large and small; Snipes Beach Park, The Duck Pond, Schmidts Woods, and a major Meadowlands preserve, Mill Creek Marsh, in the northern sector of the town. The trailhead of the 1.5-mile long Mill Creek Marsh Trail is located adjacent to the big box stores, providing access for birding especially. With its patches of marsh grasses, mud flats and long winding brackish waterways, the Meadowlands is home to 260 bird species, including 15 state-endangered species.

Canoe and kayak trips through the meadows are available at Laurel Hill Hudson Country Park in Secaucus. The Hackensack Riverkeeper (201-920-4746) rents canoes and kayaks on weekends from April through October. The Hackensack Riverkeeper Cruise Program, (201-968-0808) offers two-hour guided naturalist trips on the river and through the marshes of the Meadowlands The park also boasts two floating docks and the only free, unrestricted public boat ramp on the River. The Meadowlands Enviornment Center is a short drive from Secaucus. More on eco-tourism.

While sports and recreation serve the young, the town has also remembered its older residents. Secaucus has led the State in Senior housing. Three major Senior Citizen residences and a Senior activity center serve the needs of those who have served the town.

Secaucus is community centered, with clubs and organizations – Kiwanis, Rotary, Lions, Masons, Unico. etc. One can become active with the Shade Tree Commission, or any number of other organizations. The Volunteer Fire Department is a focal point of activity and civic pride.

Secaucus offers fine schools for its children. There are two public elementary schools and a middle-high school. There, children get a caring education and are offered a range of extra curricular activities. The new Arthur F. Couch Performaning Arts Center was opened at the High Schoool/Middle School facility in 2005. There is a library preschool and day care centers for the town’s youngest. The public school system uniquely offers full day kindergarten and pre-kindergarten programs.

The Secaucus Public Library and Business Resource Center offers outstanding facilities for research and recreational reading, plus ample computer facilities with free wi-fi access, a small-business center and meeting rooms.

Eight churches and a Hindu temple serve the religious needs of the community. The Episcopal Church of Our Saviour, First Reformed, Immaculate Conception Roman Catholic, St. Matthew’s Evangelical Lutheran and Shree Swaminarayan Hindu Temple each maintain their own religious centers. Quimby Community Church meets at The Church of Our Saviour, and North Jersey United Pentecostal Church meets at the First Reformed Church.

All this and more in a town of 16,000 residents! It’s a great place to live, work, raise a family, and a great place to visit.

Electronic Arts' fight over NFL avatars attracts big media attention

 Misc  Comments Off on Electronic Arts' fight over NFL avatars attracts big media attention
Mar 032015

Big media companies, including the Washington Post and Los Angeles Times, have lined up to support video game maker Electronic Arts in seeking a new court hearing regarding EAs use of likenesses of former NFL players.

EA is fighting a2012 lawsuit over its popular Madden NFL game, filed by NFL players including Vince Ferragamo. The playersallegethat the company hasnt paid them or sought their permission to use their likenesses in the game.

According to the media companies, the First Amendment issues at stake in the lawsuit could have broad impact on the entertainment and media industry.

A wide range of speech was put in danger, when EA was found to be unprotected by the First Amendment in the lawsuit, according to a brief written by lawyers for the media companies.

EA is based in Redwood City, California, but the Madden game is made in Maitland, a suburb of Orlando, where the company employs 800 people.

EA tried to argue that the First Amendment protects its rights to use the likeness of well-known people, but a judge and an appeals court ruled against that argument last year.

Electronic Arts now seeks a rehearing on the First Amendment question, saying that the court missed some important issues in its previous rulings. Thats when the big media groups got invovled.

The media groups are asking the court to clarify the law for the benefit of video game makers, film producers, songwriters, and other creators.

If the use is relevant to the underlying expression in the work, the First Amendment should almost always protect the use (except when a use explicitly misleads consumers as to origin or sponsorship), according to the media groups arguments.

The media companies said they are focused on speech other than commercial advertising, so the definition of commercial advertising is also in play for the dispute.

Video: Is Sarkodie part of Illuminati or just courting controversy?

 Illuminati  Comments Off on Video: Is Sarkodie part of Illuminati or just courting controversy?
Jan 172015

Entertainment of Saturday, 17 January 2015


In December 2011, award winning rapper Sarkodie, born Michael Kwesi Owusu Addo, released the video of his hit song Saa Okodie No and many alleged that some visuals in the video had some satanic connotations.

The issue generated heated discussions on radio, TV and online with many alleging that he had joined the popular underworld group, Illuminati.

Sarkodie, in a bid to save his image and also dispel the rumours, swiftly recorded the song Illuminati and subsequently released the video for it in August 2013.

The Illuminati video earned the rapper several local and international award nominations. He won four awards at the 2013 edition of the 4Syte Music Video Awards.

Just when many thought the artiste had successfully shaken off the controversy, his latest music video, Revenge Of The Spartans has got tongues wagging again.

Revenge Of The Spartans, directed by David Nicol-sey and released Wednesday, January 14 has reignited a somewhat subtle controversy that the rapper, who is still enjoying massive successes in his career, has hanging around his neck regarding his association with Illuminati.

While Sarkodie uses the lyrics in the song to cement his supremacy in the rap game, some visuals in the video are currently the subject on social media circles.

In the 3 minutes, 33 seconds video, the rapper stirs controversy as 125 seconds into the video; at 177 seconds and 11 seconds before the end of the video.

History's 'Sons of Liberty' foment the American Revolution

Jan 032015

Long before the Declaration of Independence was signed in 1776, there was a group of radical young men who fomented rebellion against the British monarchy.

They represented all tiers of society, from well-heeled lawyers to humble craftsmen. They met in secret at Boston’s Green Dragon Tavern to plot daring acts of defiance. They railed against taxation without representation.

And rather than serve as second-class subjects of a distant monarch, they famously believed that all men are created equal and endowed with the unalienable rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Those seminal years leading to America’s violent separation from the British Empire are re-created in “Sons of Liberty,” a six-hour scripted miniseries that begins airing Jan. 25 on History. “Many people think of powdered wigs and quill pens when they think about that period,” says Dirk Hoogstra, executive vice president and general manager of History and H2. “We’re bringing this story to life in a way a lot of people haven’t seen before. We want it to be adventurous, bring some adrenaline to it.”

In developing the miniseries, the producers consulted with historians to be as accurate as possible. “You can’t make a documentary,” Hoogstra acknowledges. “No one knows what was said. Some parts you have to fictionalize, so you can’t be 100% factual.

“I know for sure,” he adds, “if people are entertained, they’re going to Google it. They’re going to engage with American history in a way they might not have before.”

Produced by A+E Studios in association with Stephen David Entertainment, “Sons of Liberty” was directed by Kari Skogland (“Boardwalk Empire,” “The Borgias”).

English actor Ben Barnes (“The Chronicles of Narnia”) stars as Samuel Adams, a tax-collector-turned-statesman who spread discontent among the colonists. Today the name Samuel Adams is commonly associated with beer. But the American patriot was actually a deeply religious man with a master’s degree from Harvard and an affinity for politics rather than breweries.

Barnes describes Sam as the “beating heart of the revolution.” He was also a sort of Robin Hood who put himself in the British cross hairs by refusing to collect taxes from some of his fellow citizens. In the TV show, Sam evades arrest by racing across rooftops and jumping through windows.

Along with Sam, dubbed “The Instigator,” the miniseries features his conservative cousin attorney and future president John Adams referred to as “The Reluctant One.” He’s played by Henry Thomas (“E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial,” “Gangs of New York”).
