All of the films provide students with a better understanding of the people, places and events of this era. While you can watch the films at the website, you can also download them for a small fee. But that’s not all!
When you are through watching the films, explore the menu. You will find primary source documents, biographies of notable women in early American history, maps, music of the era, milestone events recounted through primary source documents, famous obituaries, biographies of famous early Americans, and a wonderful gallery of portraits of early Americans including John Adams, Patrick Henry, Thomas Jefferson, Thomas Paine and much more.
