"The War That Made America"

The War That Made America brings to life a vastly important — but often misunderstood — period of American history, a period that set in motion forces that would culminate in the American Revolution. The dramatic documentary tells the story of the French and Indian War (1754–1763), which began in the wilderness of the Pennsylvania frontier and spread throughout the colonies, into Canada, and ultimately around the world. Narrated and hosted by Graham Greene, the Academy-Award nominated actor for Dances With Wolves and an Oneida Indian whose ancestors fought in this war, The War That Made America combines a commitment to accuracy with a compelling filmed portrayal of the dangerous world of the 18th-century frontier.
