America was discovered almost by accident and settled by those whose common dream was the hope of living a new and better life. Free from persecution, they were determined to form a government of the people, by the people and for the people. Throughout two hundred and twenty years of revolution, civil war, world wars, depressions, political achievements and deceptions, the American Nation continues to grow and flourish. We are proud to present this edition on the history of the United States. Discover how America has become the greatest nation on Earth: from Plymouth Rock to Rock and Roll; from the Declaration of Independence to Independent Counsels; from the Gilded Age to the Information Age; from George Washington to Bill Clinton. America's rich history is an enduring legacy of the human spirit and the power of democracy. Grades 6-12. 120 minutes.
