The War that Made America (2006)

“Yankee Doodle” captured the disdain held by British soldiers toward American militiamen. This documentary on the French and Indian War reveals some of the resulting tensions within the English and American alliance. Through reenactments and dramatic readings of contemporary accounts, this four-part, four-hour series traces the war from George Washington’s mission to the Ohio Valley in 1753 to the postwar British policies that led to the American Revolution.
