America - The Story of Us is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 26.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a three disc set that takes the viewer from the days prior to the American Revolutionary War to the millenium in America. It is narrated by men and women of today in roughly 45 minute segments so is easy to view when time is limited. It is very informative and interesting with good photography. To the History Buff I would say it is a "must have." A very good value for the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great DVD This DVD was made by the History channel and is a great overview of American History. If you ever wanted to learn more about how American came to be, this is a well done version of history.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I wanted the DVD's (America:The Story of Us) for a birthday gift. Time was important but so was the full collection of all the DVD's. Some places sold them separately, which would have been very expensive, and some stores sold these for almost double what Walmart had them for. So, no brainer. Thank You very much for 1. Having them at a very reasonable price. and 2. Mailing them to me when you said you would so they arrived on time. They were loved by the recipient.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome These three disks make us history so understanding and more interesting. As a junior in high school I'm taking the us History course and watching these movie as I go through the chapters that I learn through out the week to get a better explanation of what I learnedthatweek.i have done better on my daily quizzes and test because of these three disks. If you are a high school us history teacher this is strongly recommended to use in your classroom for your students to get a better explanation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing video product!! Mindblowing. This product is in fact amazing, not only in the fact that the quality is so desirable, but also the fact that the re-enactments are so real. The DVD takes many hours to watch in the 3 disc presentation, which is filled with the history of the US in about 400 years. There is only one annoyance in the disc. This probably will not apply to everyone. I am a high school student studying for AP U.S. History. The DVD is realistic, and very very lengthy with many facts. However, the first chapter of the first DVD (out of three) covers over 30 pages of notes I have taken. It is not very specific and only manages to focus mainly on the British. As you may know, the U.S. is formed by many other countries, such as Spain, France, Dutch, Chinese, etc. But, overall, the DVD is terrific for general information and entertainment. The price is so worth it. Walmart did a TERRIFIC job in shipping it. I couldn't ask for a better service.
