We need more shows like this to bring our history to life!!! The last British commander, Gen. While Turn has been declined in ratings year to year, it can boast being in the top ten watched series by the most affluent people in America. Possibly because of that, the finale will include some flash-forwards. Cicero, Jordan, Abigail Cicero and Jordan are in jail, captured by the Americans and mistakenly believed to be British spies. Other than that I watch wrestling a carryover from childhood and a few documentaries here and there.
Men of Honor At Whitehall, George Washington and his entourage come to pay respects to Abe for his service to the American cause. The cable network has renewed the American Revolution drama for a 10-episode fourth season, which will be its last.

Townsend strikes a moral tone, expressing regret that their business was in lies and deception. But they are on opposite sides of the battle lines. Turn: Washington's Spies takes viewers into the stirring and treacherous world of the Revolutionary War and introduces Abraham Woodhull who, after aligning with a group of childhood friends, forms the Culper Ring--America's first spy ring. Abe is shocked again later when Washington personally pays him for his service.
The farm is in a sad condition and Abe looks little better as he favors the bullet wound in his shoulder. Poor irascible, violent, entertaining Rogers appears to have died in the gutter from alcohol poisoning, but not before he gave a vital agricultural tip to Abe Woodhull. Competing with shows like The Walking Dead, which actually earned a lot of smack during its last season, they still raked in over 11 Million viewers and boasted a rating of 5. While the battles rage, Colonel Simcoe is recovering from severe wounds on a troop ship headed back to England. The series originally aired on the network for four seasons, from April 6, 2014, to August 12, 2017. Did it live up to expectations? Simcoe into a respected statesman.

We must never take our freedom for granted! I would have been very disappointed if this show was canceled, not just with the network, but with the country because this show focuses on early American history, and for that reason in itself, more people should be watching. As for the love life, what might have been a fanciful, romantic ending, is not. It has its compensations inasmuch as the lovely Mary is not exactly a booby prize.
