The Presidents

"The Presidents," part of the American Experience series on PBS, explores the lives and times of the individuals who have held the highest office in the land. One can look at the presidency in the 20th century and through its office see the drama of contemporary America—war, economic hardship, women's rights, race relations, our triumphs and our tragedies—it is all there. EDSITEment also has a companion feature/index that highlights video segments as they pertain to relevant EDSITEment content.
