    I watched the complete 3 disc set and found it amazingly fullfilling and hard to stop. The set includes a lot of things that I didn't know about and recommend it to parents looking for something to get their kids up to date on American History. There are many items that are not mentioned in the package but overall it's worth the money and time to watch.

    My husband uses this in his classroom. It's a good way to keep the kids interested in what he is teaching them about and it reiterates his lessons. It gives them a great visual.

    This was a very informative documentary abt the history of the United States. I learned things I didn't already know. I'm glad the history channel decided to make this.

    I liked the show overall. However, I was disappointed that they neglected, or glossed over, certain points in history that have helped shape American society. For example, they completely skip Reconstruction. Also, although it is nice to see familiar faces talking about history... I highly doubt the validity of commentators like Donald trump and other popular icons.

    I use this DVD in my high school classroom. It's fast-paced, slick, and generally holds students' interest when shown in small bits and relevant to what we're studying.
