The first page of the program features George III, who is most widely known in America for his stubborn refusal to listen to the grievances of the colonists, eventually resulting in war. However, there is another story to George II which will gain the sympathy of the most patriotic of Americans.  Click on image for the program to read about an incident regarding George III's battle with mental illness.
