Description by OLDIES.com:
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 second in a 4-part series, this DVD includes short-form biographies of the 12th-25th United States Presidents. Beginning with Zachary Taylor and the threat of southern succession and a civil war to William McKinley and the 100-Day War. The educational feature "We the People" explores the important role immigrants have played in U.S. history. Interviews with political experts and commentators like 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.
