American history is so much more than dates and documents?it's the dynamic story of the real men and wormen, immigrants and Native Americans, who together built our country. "Disney's The American Presidents" is a fresh and relevant narrative (developed with the former producer of "The Daily Show" and "The Colbert Report") about the men who led this country through change?from an early idea of democracy to our first African-American President. The first in a 4-part series, this DVD includes short-form biographies of the first 11 United States Presidents. Beginning with George Washington and the birth of a nation to the "dark horse" James Polk. The educational feature "The Making of the Presidency" explores how and why the United States selected presidency over monarchy. Interviews with political experts and commentators like Harry Rubenstein (Curator, Division of Politics and Reform for Smithsonian's National Museum of American History), 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 bring the past to life.
