SonsofLiberty160Lionsgate Home Entertainment announced that the HISTORY channel blockbuster miniseries Sons of Liberty will be released on Blu-ray and DVD on May 26, 2015. Scripted by the writer of the acclaimed HBO miniseries John Adams, Sons of Liberty tells the story of the American Revolution as it begins to take shape.

As riots consume the streets of Boston, a dangerous game plays out between a British governor and ringleader Sam Adams, which escalates to extreme measures-street brawls, black market dealings, espionage and murder. A sizzling, romantic affair percolates against a backdrop of rising civil unrest, the infamous Boston Tea Party and Paul Revere’s legendary ride. From the Battle of Lexington, a clash between the dedicated colonists and the superior British Army ensues, and the colonies join forces as a single, united country in the most epic revolution of our time.
