Set in 1777, the series revolved around a fictional undercover patriot group called the Yankee Doodle Society based out of Chester, Pennsylvania. The leader of the group was Jeremy Larkin (Rick Ely), the younger son of Chester's mayor. His associates were Henry Abington (Alex Henteloff), the son of the local pharmaceutical and an inventor/explosives expert who bore a bit of a resemblance to Benjamin Franklin, and the town's blacksmith Isak Poole (Louis Gossett, Jr.), a former slave who had bought his own freedom. Jeremy's girlfriend, Elizabeth Coates (Hilary Thompson), sometimes accompanied the Society on its escapades. They reported directly to the 20 year old General Lafayette, who occasionally joined their operations. Covering their activism by pretending indifference to the war effort, they were very effective at spying for the American forces and harassing the British behind enemy lines. Each episode was loosely based on a historical event. The series ran from September 20, 1970 to January 3, 1971.  This 8-disc set contains all 15 episodes produced.
