Storyline

George Washington is central to understanding America's founding. He was the crucial figure in winning the American Revolution, in creating the Constitution, and in establishing the precedents for effective self-government as our first President. George Washington's sense of virtue, his lifelong activity as a citizen, his reverence for the rule of law, and his commitment to establishing the American Republic make him the essential figure for every American to know and study. This is especially true at a time where there has been dramatic decline in the number of Americans who know and understand American history. In this documentary film, The First American, Newt and Callista Gingrich, in collaboration with the Gingrich Foundation and Peace River Company, explore the life and legacy of George Washington. This film features exclusive interviews with H.W. Brands, Douglas Brinkley, Jane Hampton Cook, Joseph Ellis, William Forstchen, Gay Hart Gaines, Allen Guelzo, Victor David Hanson, ...

Wonderful glimpse into the life of most important founding fatger
11 May 2019 | by tyliterSee all my reviews

A very well put together documentary that highlights some of the most important moments of George Washington's life as well as the key periods of time that gave birth to our nation. I was very impressed with all the information provided & only held back from giving it 10 out of 10 stars because there were a few things I wish had been addressed that weren't.
