Overview

This ambitious, epic-length documentary program chronicles the heart-wrenching tale of European settlers' attempts to subvert, viscerally abuse, and in many cases kill off Native American Indians over the course of 350 years, as they themselves settled into North America. Beginning in 1540 - the year when explorer Francisco Vázquez de Coronado undertook his expedition to the Great Plains - a series of bloody battles transpired that lost tens of thousands of lives. The program moves through this period, touching on such pivotal events as The Seminole Wars, The Battle of Tippecanoe, and ultimately, the Battle of Wounded Knee, where the outcome permanently altered the trajectory of American history.
