Now Availabe on DVD -- Road to Independence from Bridgestone Multimedia Group (Review)

Road to Independence 


Director Mike Church presents the triumphant true story of the Declaration of Independence and the men who pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their honor to bring it to life. John Adams, a brash, young lawyer from Boston, has just been appointed to the First Continental Congress. There, he meets Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, Patrick Henry, and more, who, along with Ben Franklin (voiced by Emmy Award winner Jay Thomas), seek to declare their independence, but first, they have to convince their countrymen who oppose the idea nearly as forcefully as the British.

An enlightening look at the courage of our founding fathers, this animated DVD is ideal for the whole family or as supplemental material for a U.S. history lesson. Viewers of all ages are sure to be inspired by this retelling of actual events and the patriots who fought so passionately for the freedoms Americans enjoy today.

My Thoughts:

Since receiving this DVD last month, I have watched it a few times, as well as shared it with friends who homeschool their children.  What a fascinating and entertaining this animated film is, for children of all ages, to enjoy with their families.  This film follows the Founding Fathers, as they seek to write up and put into law the Declaration of Independence.  Young children will learn about the courage and determination of each of the key players, who helped tirelessly in order to provide us with the freedoms we appreciate today.  If your child is learning about the Declaration of Independence in school, this is a great supplement to what they have read about in the classroom.

Even though my daughters are too young to understand this film, I know that when they get older and begin to ask about the importance of national holidays and our freedoms, that this animated film will come in handy in explaining to them about the Founding Fathers and how the Declaration of Independence came about and was put into law.

Disclosure:  I was sent a copy of this DVD from Bridgestone Multimedia Group in order to write up an honest review.  The views above are mine and mine alone.
