Host Jordan Murphy explores eleven spectacular National Monuments throughout America's historic southland. He travels from the prehistoric ruins of Louisiana, Georgia and Alabama to the center of Colonial Spain (present day Florida). Then he travels on to the battlegrounds where the Civil War began and was fought in the Historic South. It is also a journey of natural history from the dawn of the Appalachian Mountains to the modern day rich agricultural lands of the South. Each monument is presented in three chapters: virtual tour, nature and science, and history and culture.
