What happens when pioneer Kirsten, slavery escapee Addy, suffragette Samantha, that nerd Molly, and Kit (I am too old to know anything about her)—a.k.a the American Girls—come together to fight a well-known evil? Destruction, bloodshed, and, as always, a lesson in American history.

Kirsten (played by Veep’s Anna Chlumsky) has always been resourceful—so resourceful, in fact, that the candles in her Santa Lucia crown can be swapped out for dynamite.
