PROGRAM DESCRIPTIONS

It could be said that America was invented, not discovered. AMERICA THE STORY OF US looks at history from an entirely new viewpoint with untold stories about the men and women – both famous figures and everyday people – who pushed innovation and ingenuity to the very edge of possibility to create a modern world that was unthinkable at its founding. From the taming of the west, to the building of our great cities, to the conflict that united an divided a nation, AMERICA THE STORY OF US immerses viewers in each moment as it happens.

The most in-depth television series ever produced by HISTORY®, AMERICA THE STORY OF US was the first television event in nearly 40 years to present a comprehensive telling of America's monumental history, and the most elaborate and ambitious in the scale of its cinematic vision. This mother of all history lessons, making history itself as the most watched premiere in network history – seen by nearly 6 million viewers -- will now be available as six specially priced DVD singles. Each DVD, priced to collect at $14.95srp, features highly realistic CGI animation (the most ambitious CGI the network has ever applied to a historical narrative), dramatic re-creations and thoughtful insights from some of America's most respected artists, business leaders, academics and intellectuals including Professors Daniel Walker Howe, David M. Kennedy and Henry Louis Gates, Jr., Brian Williams, Buzz Aldrin, Colin Powell, David Baldacci, General David H. Petraeus, Donald Trump, Michael Douglas, General Tommy Franks and many more.

From the revolutionary war that birthed the nation to the civil war that divided it, and to the making of the modern world, AMERICA THE STORY OF US is an epic, dramatic, heartbreaking and triumphant journey that reminds us that American history truly belongs to we, the people.

AMERICA THE STORY OF US DVD singles include:

AMERICA: THE STORY OF US: REBELS
From Jamestown to Plymouth, early settlers fight for survival. Tobacco sows the seeds of opportunity; the north becomes a powerhouse of trade. Tension, taxation and resistance explode into war as the rebels take on the might of the British Empire. Washington's army is near defeat, but new weapons and battle tactics turn the tide. Forged through revolution, a new nation is born. (AAAE244260, 92 mins.)

AMERICA: THE STORY OF US: WESTWARD
Trailblazing pioneers set out to conquer the west, but find the land already claimed, wagon trains meet hardship on the road to California's gold and the steamboat ushers in a new era of commerce, industry, and unprecedented wealth in AMERICA: THE STORY OF US: WESTWARD. And, in the south, cotton is king but slavery fuels a growing divide, and violence flares across the territories and the election of Lincoln is a harbinger of war. (AAAE244270, 92 mins.)

AMERICA: THE STORY OF US: THE CIVIL WAR
The Civil War rages. The formidable Confederate army cannot match the Union's mastery of technology as railroads, supply lines and the telegram become new weapons in a modern war. The transcontinental railroad unites the nation and transforms the heartland. Farmers settle the continent; their cattle replace wild buffalo as king of the plains. The cowboy becomes a new American icon. (#AAAE244280, 92 mins.)

AMERICA: THE STORY OF US: BOOM
Americans conquer a new frontier, the modern city, with Carnegie's empire of steel as its backbone. Skyscrapers and the Statue of Liberty are symbols of the American dream for millions of immigrants. The discovery of oil is a boom to industry; Henry Ford puts America on the road. Urban life introduces a new breed of social ills, while prohibition fuels the growth of organized crime. (AAAE244290, 92 mins.)

AMERICA: THE STORY OF US: RISE OF A SUPERPOWER
Boom turns to bust when the stock market crashes. The Great Depression and the dust bowl blanket the nation in darkness. Roosevelt's New Deal signals recovery. Hope for the American future collides with world conflict; the attack on Pearl Harbor brings war. American innovation and manufacturing power invigorate the Allies in Europe. In the Pacific, the ultimate piece of technology ends the war; a new global superpower takes the stage. (AAAE244300, 92 mins.)

AMERICA: THE STORY OF US: MILLENNIUM
America becomes a global superpower; the economy and population boom. In the jet age and the space age, pioneers conquer new frontiers and run headlong into Cold War. The Challenger disaster and 9/11 are tragedies that try the nation's spirit. From the television to the credit card and the personal computer, technology drives America into the 21st century. (AAAE244310, 92 mins.)
