America, the Story of Us, is a fascinating documentary that brings the history of the United States to life. Introduced by President Barak Obama in the first episode, its journey begins in Jamestown and Plymouth and starts with the story of the earlier settlers. The rest of the series unfolds as it continues telling historical events and time periods such as the Revolutionary War, the move out west, the Civil war, right up to the early 21st century and September 11, 2001, also known as 9-11. It is very well written and executed as it tells of the struggles and triumphs of the United States as well as the feelings of its citizens of each time period.
