"America: The Story of Us is a documentary series created by the History Channel that chronicles the creation of the United States of America, from the settling of the 13 colonies to the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. Periodically we watch episodes and complete a question sheet in which the students are graded for an in class assignment. Each episode is approximately 50 minutes in length.
The episodes can be watched in full on YouTube. Each link will take you to a particular episode. The link to this episode is for episode #1 entitled "Rebels."
