Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

interesting and accurate

I saw this in American history in 8th grade. I only remember bits and pieces of it, but it was about what I expected it to be. The battle scenes were accurate and were neither graphic nor sanitized- typical of war movies at the time, and typical Disney fare from Walt's day as well. The rest of the movie was interesting too, as we got to learn about people associated with the American Revolution that we don't usually hear about.
