Storyline

A six-night miniseries presenting the history of how the United States was invented, looking at the moments where Americans harnessed technology to advance human progress -- from the rigors of linking the continent by transcontinental railroad to triumphing over vertical space through the construction of steel-structured buildings. The series also is a story of conflict, with Native American peoples, slavery, the Revolutionary War that birthed the nation, the Civil War that divided it, and the great world war that shaped its future. Written by History Channel Publicity

Show is not that bad!
27 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've only watched the first three episodes of this series, and I'm having trouble understanding all the negative reviews. I'm not a history major, but did take several history courses in college, and am an avid fan of American history. I must say, that most of what I've seen accompanies what I've learned - and then some. Even my husband, who admittedly finds history rather boring, thought the series was done well. I do agree that the celebrities where a bit out of place, but that probably made it more appealing to younger viewers.

One reviewer claimed the series was for the "Sesame Street generation", well that might make sense, being that my husband and I both loved Sesame Street growing up. Not to mention the educational show has won 118 Emmy's in its 43 years being on air, so I don't consider that to be an insult, but rather a compliment to the series and its fans!

Any American, or persons coming to America, could benefit from watching this series. The struggles the first English settlers went through makes me much more appreciative of the freedoms we have today.
