Description
The 'revolution' in question is that of the United States' struggle for independence, which took place roughly from 1775 through 1783. Borne out of a heady and intoxicating swirl of ideas about self-government and individual liberties, the Revolutionary War advanced on the shoulders of men and women who built a radically new future for themselves - and a country unlike any in the history of the world. This 13-episode documentary miniseries touches on all of the major events of the said struggle, from the Battle of Yorktown through the drafting of the Declaration of Independence; throughout, it features carefully-staged dramatic reenactments, objective biographical profiles of Revolutionary War architects, and much more - all laced with detailed historical and sociopolitical analysis. Episodes include Boston, Bloody Boston, The War Heads South, A Hornet's Nest, The End Game and Road to the Presidency.

      Excellent learning "tool" about the Revolutionary War. Also explains very well the beginning/early years of the USA. Presents information/details on a number of individuals who took part in the war, not just the famous, well-known people.

This would be a good tool for those who want to learn the basics on the American Revolution for young and old alike.

                              This product is an excellent instructional tool for my U.S. History classes. The DVD is divided into 3 sections per DVD with 6 chapters per section. These 10-13 minute sections make perfect additions to my teaching curriculum as they bring what we cover in class to life. Whether it is the model of leadership that George Washington provided to the heartbreaking treason that the heroic Benedict Arnold committed, this collection on the Revolution is a wonderful addition to my classroom!

                                I was a history major and love studying anything related to history. My favorite documentary is Ken Burns The Civil War. But...this...is very close. I gained much knowledge from this and really found it to be riveting. It was nothing for me to watch the entire ten hours. I absolutely loved it so much that I ordered it as a gift for a friend of mine. Great DVD set!

                                As a high school media specialist, I have previewed many educational DVDs. This one on the American Revolution is by far one of the best I've seen. It allows for short snippets of information as well as provides necessary background for gaining deep understanding of the events.

                                    I took my G.E.D. test knowing only what these DVD's taught me about the American revolution; and the test showed that I know more about the History of the Revolutionary War than 80% of the US population.

                                    A must have for historians.
