Introduces early American history beginning with the formation of America in 1783 and ending with the War of 1812.


The American Story continues . . .

After many years of struggle and sacrifice, the American colonists had finally earned their freedom. It was now time to establish unity among the thirteen states and forge a new nation.

Our founding fathers wrote a Constitution and a Bill of Rights to set up a democracy, a government that would put the people first.

The country grew and flourished. With the purchase of the Louisiana Territory, the United States doubled in size. Lewis and Clark were sent to explore the west, and five more states joined the Union. But rising tensions with the British would create more challenges to overcome.

In this installment of the acclaimed American Story series, history lovers Betsy and Giulio Maestro tell the true story of the first thirty-two years of the United States, from the Treaty of Paris to the War of 1812.
