During the American Revolution, 15-year-old Louis Nelson and 10-year-old Paul Sampson join famed frontier scout Simon Kenton in the advance section of Major George Rogers Clark force crossing the Ohio River to take the British Forts of Kaskaskia, Cahokia, and Vincennes. Danger awaits them as they go deep into enemy territory while war drums ring through the forest.
Presented by the award winning Colonial Radio Theatre on the Air, Kentucky is the first in CRT's Spirit of America series, dramatizing the books by James Otis that revolve around great moments in the early history of the United States.
