EPISODE SUMMARY FROM THE HISTORY CHANNEL:
The final two episodes of this series look at defining moments in U.S history from 1945 on and trace them back to their antecedents in earlier American history. Some of the nation’s most prominent personalities and leaders share their ideas on the definitive moments in American history, and reflect on what is unique about the U.S.
The story of post-war America is retold though multiple voices – events explored include the building of the interstate highways and suburbia, the tensions of the Cold War, the euphoria of the Civil Rights movement, the role of hippies and counterculture, the dark hours of Vietnam and Watergate, the Reagan era, the rise of Silicon Valley and the groundbreaking election of President Barack Obama.
Following the theme of technological innovation throughout the series, these episodes look at how the U.S. landed humans on the moon and contributed to enormous technological inventions such as the Internet. Through the reflections of historians and notable Americans, we’ll look at what has endured through 400 years of U.S. history, and ponder the stories that have yet to be told.
