"Reveals the epic history behind the creation of America, exploring how and why our ancestors came to this country. From the Dutch living in New Amsterdam seeking the wealth offered by the fur trade, through the English Quakers who fled persecution and helped shape the American Constitution, to the German soldiers who helped the North defeat the South, this episode uses expert historians, DNA evidence and census records to explore our cultural origins through the different groups who travelled to America seeking freedom from early Colonial times through the end of the Civil War."
