A MORE PERFECT UNION: America Becomes a Nation is the first comprehensive recreation of those stirring, heated debates during the sweltering summer of 1787. Filmed on location at Independence Hall, Williamsburg, Virginia, and other historical sites, it dramatically chronicles how America became a nation and those underlying principles that guard our freedoms today.
AMERICA, 1786. Ten years since the signing of the Declaration of Independence, England wages a new war of unfair trade and tariffs. Bickering and jealousy fracture the once united states.
But a handful of brilliant men, JAMES MADISON, GEORGE WASHINGTON, and BENJAMIN FRANKLIN, lead a political battle to create a new form of government, one that will establish the standard of self-government to the world.
I watch this DVD often and never tire from it. The scene when George Washington arrived in Philadelphia and stepping out of his carriage, always brings joyous tears. I believe it is an important DVD for our families and children to watch and learn. A well-done, and wonderfully portrayed movie of this most important event in our history.
