AMC's 'Turn' TV Series Motivates Virginia to Debut New Revolutionary War Trail

April 7, 2014 at 3:31 PM | by | ()

AMC is hoping it will have the same luck with its newest series, Turn, that it's had with the pop culture phenomenons Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead.

Turn is a Revolutionary War period drama based on Alexander Rose’s book Washington's Spies: The Story of America's First Spy Ring.

The state of Virgina is also hoping the show is a hit and taking full advantage of its connection to Turn by launching "TURN: The Trail", a series of Revolutionary War attractions and Turn filming locations across the state.

Among the trail stops is Virgina's first plantation Shirley Plantation, the home George Washington bought for his mother Mary in 1772, and Centre Hill which was built by Revolutionary War veteran Robert Bolling IV.

Colonial Williamsburg has jumping on the Turn bandwagon too with the spy game, RevQuest: The Old Enemy. Williamsburg visitors will be able to get their "top-secret orders" at the park this summer and use their cell phone to find and solve clues.
