Sometimes the scenes were shot where the events actually had taken place a Williamsburg va., Lexington Concord Boston and Philadelphia. Critical moments of history were artfully reconstructed. Silhouettes and shadows of a few men accompanied by sound effects told of big Battles and bad defeats. The cameras moved in close on old cannons and muskets and a Flag being lowered.
