Summary:
After Columbus came conquest--from all corners of the world, explorers reached the shores of the New World to reap untold riches, seek new routes to the Far East, and gain the most elusive glory of all--a place in history.

CONQUEST OF AMERICA brings a stunning four-part series from THE HISTORY CHANNEL to DVD for the first time. A sweeping saga of bravery, cruelty and pure folly, these are the stories of adventurers who stopped at nothing to conquer an unknown land and its peoples. Led by legendary cities of gold and mythical passages to China, foiled by international intrigue and mutiny on the high seas, men like Francisco Vasquez de Coronado, Henry Hudson, Jean Ribault, and Vitus Bering left an indelible mark on a vast new continent.

Straight from the explorers' journals, European diaries and oral histories of Native Americans, CONQUEST OF AMERICA presents an amazing, region-by-region account of extraordinary times and extraordinary men. Expert commentary and vivid on-site re-enactments complete this epic course in history.

DVD Features: Behind-the-Scenes "Conquering The East"; Behind-the-Scenes "Conquering The West"; Interactive Menus; Scene Selection
