The early 20th century in America is brought back to vibrant life in dramatic color. Explore Alaska's statehood, witness the FBI's war against public enemies, follow immigrants in search of the American dream, and track the nation's industrial rise and creation of a workforce that would build the richest and most powerful economy in the world. Using cutting-edge digital colorization technology, this is a look at some of the most seminal landmarks, people, and moments in American history.
At the turn of the 20th century, two-thirds of Americans live in small towns, but by the 1960s, only a third remain. Some are lured to cities by the promise of opportunity and money, while others move there to escape racism and intolerance. Through it all, the myth of these quaint, harmonious communities continues to burn powerfully in the minds of many. This is the story of small town America, from soap box derbies and Will Rogers' charm to postwar poverty and the Great Migration, presented in color.
