In this episode, the first in our comprehensive series about Harrison’s life, we follow the life of William Henry Harrison from his birth up until his enrollment at Hampden-Sydney Academy (now College) and explore how the Revolutionary War affected and threatened the young Billy and his family. This episode has a British invasion (though no Beatles, I’m afraid), alcohol abuse, and even a special guest appearance by Benedict Arnold.
