Celebrity voices such as Walter Cronkite (as Benjamin Franklin), Sylvester Stallone (as Paul Revere), Ben Stiller (as Thomas Jefferson), Billy Crystal (as John Adams), Dustin Hoffman (as Benedict Arnold), Arnold Schwarzenegger (as Baron von Steuben), and Don Francisco (as Bernardo de Galvez) lend credence to characters critical to the forming of a free country, from the Boston Tea Party to the Constitutional Convention.
