Courage, New Hampshire is a drama series from 2011 that focuses on a pre-Revolutionary American settlement over the span of four hour-long episodes. The series begins in the winter of 1770, but beyond a mention to the Boston Massacre on March 5th, it makes references to nothing else unrelated to the titular New England colony. The initial episode involves a woman by the name of Sarah Pine, a woman claiming that her newborn child was sired by a British soldier, with the rest of the episode focusing on the lapses in judgement that led to her current predicament.

In the winter of 1770, the township of Courage lies on the raw edge of the frontier, in western New Hampshire. When a detachment of British soldiers arrive in search of deserters, they fail to catch their quarry, but one of them does catch the eye of the justice of the peace. Sergeant Bob Wheedle, of the 29th Regiment, was here a year before and he left something behind. While under house arrest in the Noah Pine's barn, Sergeant Bob befriended Pine's niece, Sarah. What happened between the two of them, according to Sarah's testimony, was a proposal of marriage, and she has the baby girl to prove it. Sergeant Bob must now face a bastardy trial, far from his fellow soldiers in Boston.
