(Based on 1 review)
Category: DVDs/Culture, History and Religion/U.S. History

Founding father, commander of the Continental Army and America's first president—George Washington's face is as familiar as the dollar bill. Today, archaeologists, scientists and historians are applying innovative forensic techniques to reveal the man behind the myth. We join a team, funded by the National Geographic Society, that has discovered the ruins of George Washington's childhood home—its exact location had been a mystery until now. As they comb the site, they unearth two cellars and a collection of incredible artifacts that help set the record straight on his fabled youth. Then, despite Washington's dignified image, we learn he engaged in the dirty business of espionage. During the American Revolution, he habitually used secret codes, invisible ink and misinformation to deceive the British. We also unearth reminders of his intimate relationship with slavery at his Mount Vernon estate and executive mansion. Finally, watch forensic investigators re-create Washington's face—not as painters and sculptors have romanticized him, but as The Real George Washington.

Category: DVDs/Culture, History and Religion/World Cultures

Meet the Hutterites—a small religious colony in rural Montana who holds desperately to their sacred traditions while fighting the modern temptations of the outside world. King Colony is made up of 59 people and they are almost all related. This family lives together, works together, and worships God together, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, for their entire lives. And, like any family, this one doesn’t always agree. Most of the colony is holding tight to the age-old traditions of their ancestors, while others are flirting with modern society. Some feel that bringing modern technology, education, and ideas into the colony will only help it, while others fear that this modern way of thinking threatens their very existence. We follow the men, the women, the young, and the old, as they strive to live as proper Hutterites. Some will succeed, some will fail, and everyone will have a choice to make. This is the very first glimpse into the world of the Hutterites.

Category: DVDs/Culture, History and Religion/War and Military

American War Generals is the story of how the Army's withdrawal from Vietnam shaped America's future wars and the generals who fought them. "We think if we go to war we automatically win," General Stanley McChrystal tells us. "I realized in the summer of 2005 that we were in a very difficult fight in Iraq and there was every possibility we could lose." In this two-hour special, America's leading combat generals talk about how they spent their careers training to fight a conventional enemy like the Soviet Union, with tanks, clear frontlines and an enemy in uniform, but then found themselves bogged down fighting guerrilla wars in Iraq and Afghanistan after 9/11—the very type of war the Army hoped it would never again fight after Vietnam. Special Features: Behind the Scenes.
