Still image from The Story Of America: Part III: Leading The World

Advances the history of the United States from boom times after the Civil War to the near end of the 20th century. Covers the end of the frontier and Indian wars, the surge of industrialization and the robber barons, waves of immigrants, and both world wars from which America emerges a world leader. Also chronicles the Great Depression, the 19th Amendment, the cold war, McCarthyism, and Vietnam. Proposes that today's idea of freedom is larger than that which was at the country's beginning. Old footage, quotes, and historians' perspectives add flavor and impact.
