Seeds of Liberty

In episode two of An Independent People, William Crawley travels to America. He uncovers the story of the Ulster Presbyterian minister who struck the first blow for American religious freedom and became the father of the American Presbyterian church.

He celebrates the extraordinary contribution made by Ulster Presbyterians to America's struggle for liberty - a contribution enshrined in the Declaration of Independence - and he uncovers how revolution in America and France inspired radical Presbyterians in Ulster to rise up against the Crown in 1798.
