This Presidents' Day, as America celebrates our nations' great leaders, American Heroes Channel (AHC) digs deep into the real history behind our founding fathers in the season two premiere of CODES AND CONSPIRACIES. Exploring the unknown, hidden stories behind America's most iconic places, groundbreaking inventions, and influential people, CODES AND CONSPIRACIES uncovers the mysterious side of the United States. From secret societies to scandalous sex rings and double agendas, each episode unveils the startling truth that has been obscured by history. Back for an exciting second season, CODES AND CONSPIRACIES kicks off on Monday, February 16 at 10/9c on AHC.
In the premiere episode "Founding Fathers," CODES AND CONSPIRACIES questions the real story behind the deepest secrets of our founding fathers. Which American founder, famous for his honesty, was actually a master of deceit? Did another actually use sex as an instrument of diplomacy? Why did American historians work for 150 years to obscure the truth about the love life of one of our great presidents? Was that same president a heretic who scoffed at Christianity? And which founder engaged in the greatest cover-up in all of American history?
