parents let your tweens watch it

We watch it in school.Violence: 11+ it is quite violent and at parts shows dead bodies and alot of blood. also the donnor party scenes can be disturbing because of the discussion of cannibalism though all you see is bones blood and some dead bodies. There are alot of good role models. Sexual content: 7+ Some discussion about pregnancy and more. Drugs: 11+ alot of talk about tobacco ,whiskey, and wine. Marijuana is mentioned briefly. Language: 8+ one very quick and easy to miss s***.

Very entertaining history lesson

Very action packed. Our ten year old enjoyed it, and followed the storyline very well. War scenes can be a bit graphic in nature, but are meant to tell the realities of war. Very informative documentary overall.

Needs a more balanced approach

I hope you don't use this as your only source for American history, Not exactly a balanced approach.

My Favorite Documentary

This is a great documentary. It's very educational and exciting. The reenactments were realistic. The war scenes were violent. It's my favorite documentary.

America: The Story of Us

This is a spectacular show for all Americans. Highly educational and offers great chance to have kids/teenagers learn more about America's history. There are some scenes that show America's brutal dark side, but its all meant to educate and refresh the American mind.
