This unique video collection celebrates the history of our great nation from colonial times to the present. On this incredible journey spanning four centuries and more than 5,000 miles, you will visit the places, meet the people, and relive the events that took us from an emerging nation to leader of the free world. Revelations from personal letters and diaries, beautiful re-creations, insights from noted historians, and archival footage combine to make history come alive as never before!

Part 1: Forging a Nation - You will see the Pilgrims land on the wild shores of Massachusetts, celebrate the first Thanksgiving in 1621, and experience what life was like at Plymouth Plantation. Then relive the dramatic years of the American Revolution, and journey along with Paul Revere on his frantic midnight ride. Suffer through the bitter winter at Valley Forge with George Washington and his weary troops, and witness Thomas Jefferson as he pens the Declaration of Independence.

Part 2: Uniting a Nation - You will blaze the Wilderness Trail through the Cumberland Gap with Daniel Boone. Join Lewis and Clark on their thrilling exploration of the Pacific Northwest. Defend the Alamo with Sam Houston. Share the agony of slavery and the Civil War, from the bombardment of Fort Sumter to Lee's surrender at Appomattox Court House. Then, be there when East meets West--when a Golden Spike driven into the Utah soil signals the completion of the transcontinental railroad.

Part 3: Leading the World - You will step into Thomas Edison's workshop. Be there as Henry Ford perfects the assembly-line process. Join Teddy Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson as they lead America into the global arena. Relive the shocking events of Black Tuesday, the 1929 stock market crash. Experience the pivotal moments of World War II. See Martin Luther King leading the March on Washington. Then, journey with the first American astronauts as they walk on the moon.
