From Jamestown to Plymouth, early settlers fight for survival. Tobacco sows the seeds of opportunity; the north becomes a powerhouse of trade. Tension, taxation and resistance explode into war as the rebels take on the might of the British Empire. Washington's army is near defeat, but new weapons and battle tactics turn the tide. Forged through revolution, a new nation is born. It could be said that America was invented, not discovered. America: The Story Of Us looks at history from an entirely new viewpoint with untold stories about the men and women - both famous figures and everyday people - who pushed innovation and ingenuity to the very edge of possibility to create a modern world that was unthinkable at its founding. From the taming of the west, to the building of our great cities, to the conflict that united and divided a nation, America: The Story Of Us immerses viewers in each moment as it happens.
