Road To Independence - The Movie  

Road To Independence - The Movie

Thomas Jefferson, rode on his white horse to Independence Hall on 4 July 1776 - Declaration of Independence in hand, people lined the streets of Philadelphia and cheered. Then, once inside the chamber, Jefferson and the Founders posed for pictures while each stood in line behind John Hancock to sign the Declaration. America was born. It's a nice story but it's not true. The real story is that of a rag-tag group of men who never met one another yet shared a common bond: a thirst for Independence. This is the true, tragic and ultimately triumphant story of the Declaration of Independence and the men who pledged their lives, their fortunes and their scared honor to bring it to life.

Review:
This is a wonderful animated story of the history of our nation. History buffs will love it but so will proud Americans everywhere. And although it is animated it contains good likenesses of this country's greatest heroes including Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, John Adams, Ben Franklin and Patrick Henry. It also features a few brief war scenes; a few characters are struck by bullets and we see their bloody wounds on stomachs and chests.

This is a unique tool which can be used to teach children what happened at Independence Hall in Philadelphia and the events that led up to the signing of the Declaration of Independence. This fantastic DVD is filled with history, historical people, and significant dates. We are pleased to award this DVD our Dove "Family-Approved" Seal. This one will help you look forward with hope as you look back on the rich history of our country.
