Overview

This set brings together into a single collection ten documentaries chronicling America's dogged pursuit of freedom for itself and its citizenry, over the course of the Revolutionary War against Britain and the Civil War of the mid-19th Century. The Revolutionary War, Vol. 1 and The Revolutionary War, Vol. 2 explore such events as the Declaration of Independence, the British surrender at Yorktown and the formation of George Washington's armies. Thomas Jefferson, Vol. 1 and Thomas Jefferson, Vol. 2 offer a unique biographical profile of the third U.S. President, with such touchstones as his authorship of the Declaration of Independence, his childhood, and the events that precipitated the Revolutionary War. Abe Lincoln, Vol. 1 and Abe Lincoln, Vol. 2 travel further into the 19th Century, for a portrait of a man struggling to pull the country together at all costs, despite the secession of the Confederacy and the eruption of the Civil War. The Civil War, Vol. 1 and The Civil War, Vol. 2 chronicle this awesome conflict that forever turned the tide of history. And finally, The Diary of a Confederate Soldier, Vol. 1 and The Diary of a Confederate Soldier, Vol. 2 revisit these events by filtering them through the eyes of a young soldier who documented all of his thoughts and feelings on paper.
