Summary:
American history is so much more than dates and documents—it's the dynamic story of the real men and women, immigrants and Native Americans, who together built our country. Disney's The American Presidents is a fresh and relevant narrative (developed with a former producer of The Daily Show and The Colbert Report) about the men who led this country through change and the lives they affected, from an early idea of democracy to our first African American President.

The second in a four-part series, this DVD includes short-form biographies of the 12th-25th U.S. presidents—beginning with Zachary Taylor and the threat of southern succession and a civil war, and ending with William McKinley and the 100-Day War. The educational feature "We the People" explores the important role immigrants have played in U.S. history. The The DVD features interviews and insights from political experts and commentators like Melissa Harris-Lacewell (Associate Professor of Politics and African-American Studies at Princeton University), Paul E. Begala (Former White House Aide), Mo Rocca (Political Commentator), Sam Donaldson (News Anchor) and many others.

Try the interactive whiteboard content on every DVD—it's an exciting, competitive game that uses video clips, photographs and quotes to test students' understanding of the presidents, their political positions, and why they matter in the American story.

Only available in the US.
