  • Hallmarked by narration featuring such celebrities as Aidan Quinn, Kelsey Grammer and Jeff Daniels, this ambitious, nine-part documentary series from television's History Channel tells the epic-length chronicle of the events that led up to and surrounded the establishment of the United States of America. It begins with FOUNDING BROTHERS and FOUNDING FATHERS, biographical profiles of the multifaceted men who put their reputations and safety on the line to foster the independence of the fledgling colonies. Parts three and four, SECRETS OF THE FOUNDING FATHERS and MYSTERIES OF THE FREEMASONS, discuss some of the secret societies (including Freemasonry) that came to involve the progenitors of the U.S. in integral and intimate ways. Part five, THE REVOLUTION, chronicles the Revolutionary War itself (1775-83), detailing the battles that alternately resulted in victories and loses. Parts six and seven, BEN FRANKLIN and BENEDICT ARNOLD: A QUESTION OF HONOR profile and contrast the personalities and histories of the titular gentleman, one regarded as a hero, the other perceived as a national traitor. The set concludes with two reverential biographical studies of George Washington, WASHINGTON THE WARRIOR and THE CROSSING, each of which pay homage to the general-turned-president's remarkable leadership skills.
