Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
Playwrights and filmmakers often reach back to the tumultuous early days of the United States for colorful characters and stories, but for sheer drama there's nothing comparable to the actual events that transpired during those years immediately following the Revolutionary War -- events vividly portrayed in this engrossing two-disc documentary. Originally broadcast on the History Channel, Founding Brothers examines six pivotal incidents that helped shape U.S. history: the secret dinner at which key political figures determined the site for our capital and outlined a plan for financial growth; Benjamin Franklin's impassioned plea for an end to slavery; George Washington's Farewell Address; John Adams's turbulent presidency; the infamous duel that robbed the nation of one of its greatest early statesmen, Alexander Hamilton; and the momentous reconciliation between longtime adversaries Adams and Thomas Jefferson. Edward Herrmann's narration contributes structure, and commentary from leading scholars provides context, but the events themselves are brought to life by voice actors Peter Coyote playing Jefferson, James Woods Adams, Brian Dennehy Washington, Michael York Hamilton, Rob Lowe Madison, and Hal Holbrook Franklin, reading from speeches, letters, and memoirs written by these towering historical figures. Elegantly produced and briskly paced, this engaging documentary accomplishes something most textbooks fail to do: It conveys the sense of urgency that animated the founders' struggles to establish representative democracy in a loosely knit nation still recovering from a lengthy war. This deluxe, double-disc DVD box set adds featurettes containing additional material that amplifies the historical record.

    Very informative! Recommended for edu.

    I purchased this for educational uses. It was a great decision. The film process and the explanations on each of the founding fathers is memorable. Good for the historian or the recreational historian and students alike. I definitely suggest this for anyone's collection.
