America The Story of Us tells the extraordinary story of how America was invented, leading from the frontier to 21st Century cities, from the Mississippi to the moon, from colonial Jamestown to 9/11 up to present day. From the rigors of linking the continent by transcontinental roads and railways, to triumphing over vertical space with steel skyscrapers and space travel, the series examines how technology overcame the environment. Utilizing unprecedented CGI, the series shows the metamorphosis of the vast wilderness into villages, villages into towns and towns into the sprawling metropolitan areas that they are today. The series is also a story of conflict: Indian wars, slavery, the revolutionary war that birthed the nation, the civil war that divided it and the great world wars that shaped its future.
