This short shows the heritage that Americans are fighting for in World War II. Using excerpts from several of its Historical Featurettes, as well as newsreels and some original footage, Warner Brothers gives moviegoers an overview of American history, from the landing of the Pilgrims in 1620 to Pearl Harbor. It emphasizes that since the first European settlers arrived, the American spirit has pulled everyone together to solve problems and overcome adversity. Written by

This film was produced during WWII in a patriotic attempt to tell the history of the U.S. and inspire the country. It fails on both counts. The history although fairly correct is presented in a paternalistic manner and goes on seemingly forever. Hokey costumes and bad acting are no reason to turn off something, but they went a little too far when Abraham Lincoln spoke with an Irish accent. The film does pick up in the patriotic segment at the end - the narrator finally comes to life and has some zip to his delivery. It is too short though and filled with scenes that made me wince. A memorable one is of a Nazi soldier shooting an enemy in front of a wall and as the man dies his hands slide together and form a large bloody V for Victory. Watch this only if you are filled with the desire to watch as many shorts as you can find. Like me.
