I’m once again very excited to bring you something from the History Channel! This time it’s something equally as educational and fun.
AMERICA: THE STORY OF US
With 12 chapters spread out over three discs and a total running time of more than nine hours (not including bonus material), the History Channel’s America: The Story of Us is a sprawling primer on the history of the country and its people. Starting about 100 years after Columbus with the arrival of the earliest white settlers from across the Atlantic and finishing in the present day, the series can boast episodes devoted to major conflicts like the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, and World War II; the more gradual but still significant developments that helped shape the nation and the various elements and forces that combined to make the United States the world’s dominant superpower in the 20th century and beyond.
This would be awesome for that US history teacher’s classroom! I can definitely see myself using this in the future! Plus, it’s really interesting. It’s also wonderful for the history buff in your life (it’s never too early to start thinking about Christmas gifts). Or, if you home school, this could work well, too. America: The Story of US comes out on DVD and Blu-ray tomorrow, September 14. To correspond with its release date I’m pleased to bring you a giveaway…
