They were the most legendary and respected politicians, statesmen and warriors of history's first republic since the days of ancient Rome. They were also traitors and smugglers, rabble rousers and hot-heads, unfaithful husbands and prodigious drinkers. Because despite what some history books and much folklore would have us believe, our nation's revered "Founding Fathers" were, in fact, human beings. Now, in this comprehensive four-part series, gain a fascinating, engagingly intimate glimpse behind the iconic images on the marble busts and the noble faces gazing out from our dollar bills and pocket change. And discover the remarkable, unseen private sides of the men who risked their reputations, fortunes and lives for the cause of American independence. DISC 1: Rebels With A Cause / Taking Liberties DISC 2: You Say You Want A Revolution? / A Healthy Constitution

      It touched upon the main points and concepts of the Amercian Founding Fathers, and also upon some facts that I did not know. The film also flowed well in that it was not choppy, and kept the me interested throughout viewing. I would purchase similar type DVDs in the future.

          A very good description of the States most prominent Founding Fathers. I did not know much about them and found them extremely interesting. Being a non US citizen, it was a short and interesting way to learn about this topic.

            This presented information about Colonial "makers and breakers" which I hadn't specifically encountered before and I've had several Colonial Am. history courses. It covered the basics in an enlightened manner and whetted my appetite to read more about the "fathers." I would have liked to have had some recognition about the Europeans [Lafayette, von Steuben, Pulaski, Kosciusko, etc.,] who made significant contributions and without whose assistance the U.S. likely would not exist. Additionally, many women made major contributions, so let's have a comparable video series on them.
