Trivia

Williams Daniels reprises his role as "John Adams" from 1776 after portraying his own cousin ("Samuel Adams") in the previous miniseries THE BASTARD, making him the only actor to play both Adamses. See more »

Goofs

When Phillip Kent is at Rachel's cabin, she is singing "Amazing Grace" to him. The narration had stated this was in 1775 during the Knox Expedition. The song "Amazing Grace" was written by John Newton in 1773, and used during a prayer meeting at that time, but was not generally published until 1779, so it is unlikely that Rachel would've heard that song at that time.
