Still image from America--The Story Of Us: Rebels

As shown on the History Channel. In 1607, a small group of English adventurers lands in Jamestown. Thirteen years later the Pilgrims settle in Plymouth, New England. These men and women are all driven by the promise of a new life, and all face huge dangers from disease, starvation, and conflict. The two colonies are very different, yet in time both grow. One man's entrepreneurial dream, tobacco, and the first African Americans, turn the swamps of the South into a land of opportunity. The hardworking and resourceful Puritans forge the North into a trading powerhouse with shipbuilding at its core. Within 100 years, they have the highest standard of living in the world--a testament to a unique American spirit. Yet success and wealth prompt British jealousy, taxation, resistance and, finally, war.

    America--The Story of Us: Rebels is an excellent film. The cinematography is breathtaking. It really demonstrates the challenges our early settlers had at the start of our nation.

    This is a great lesson in history and keeps the attention of the viewer, even one who thought they didn't like history.
