Yes. It was sometime around 1975-1976, and called Spirit of '76, or The Spirit of '76. I haven't been able to find any record of it. A man with a guitar (he was white, and I think had a brown beard) sat in a room and told stories and sang songs about the American Revolution. Occasionally there would be spots that were slightly animated (basically just a few paintings) and he would narrate these. One episode was about women during this time. I can still sing the theme song. "You know the high road to freedom was a hard road to travel/Plenty of times we wound up in a fix..." I even tried to find someone on this board who remembered it, without any luck. I didn't think it was local, but I grew up in central New Jersey and watched New York shows, if that helps.
