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

As shown on the History Channel. July 9, 1776. The Declaration of Independence is read to crowds in New York. Offshore, more than 400 ships bristling with soldiers and guns are massing. It is the largest British invasion force until D-Day. America's 13 colonies have taken on the might of the world's leading superpower. Within months, George Washington's army has been decimated and defeat seems inevitable. Yet by 1783, America is free. American forces learn the hard way how to master the landscape, new weapons, and unconventional battle tactics. And with this elite force, forged through revolution, Washington saps the strength of the British Army to prevail in what has become a titanic battle of wills. As the British leave, a new nation, the United States of America, is born.

    America--The Story of Us: Revolution is an excellent platform for teaching the origins of our country. The cinematography is breathtaking, and the pacing holds attention for even the most challenged learner.

    This video has several distinct sections that cover events that led up to the American Revolution as well as the Revolution itself. The teacher used several sections for an 8th grade American History class. Though his DVD was not captioned, I was fortunate to find the exact same DVD here on DCMP. The captions are clear and well-synchronized. There was (as is always possible with streaming) two occasions one day when it buffered for a few seconds, but it was not a significant amount of time.

    I enjoy this series from History Channel and use each segment of the series as we finish that the corresponding history lessons in our textbook. It works well as a summarizing exercise.

    It is wonderful to have access to this video series. It is paired with our textbooks in middle school and high school.
