God Bless Charles Schulz...and America!
31 October 2003 | by (Kentucky) – See all my reviews

This is a wonderful series! No grade school history class should be without it. Heck, no HIGH school history class! Each episode deals with a different period of American history including the Mayflower, famous inventors, the pioneer days, the forging of the Constitution and the space age. Featuring some wonderful music from America's heritage and great (don't laugh, I mean it) performances by Charlie and his friends, this is a prize-worthy tribute to our nation.
