America: Promised Land



OCTOBER 17, 2017

Uncover the strife, triumphs, and contributions of people who populated the United States when HISTORY's epic limited series, America: Promised Land, arrives on Blu-ray (plus Digital HD) and DVD on October 17 from Lionsgate. This rousing documentary showcases the building of America as a nation through the telling of historical events, including the creation of the postage stamp by the Irish, the aid Germans provided to the Union Army in the Civil War, the Great Migration of African-Americans to the North and West, and much more.

With geographical imagery and stunning CGI effects, the series features interviews with descendants of the historical figures whose stories are told throughout documentary. From the producers of America: The Story of Us, the America: Promised Land Blu-ray and DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $19.99 and $19.98, respectively.

Everyone knows America is the land of immigrants, but how much do we really know about what drove those migrations in the first place? America: Promised Land uncovers the great forces in history that helped shape the country we live in today. Told primarily through enhanced graphics, this special will follow the migratory journeys of real people in history, revealing surprising and mind-blowing facts along the way.

Each chronological hour will focus on a specific theme - Land, War, Opportunity, and Disaster - to tell the story of how the experiences of our ancestors determined how we ended up where we are.
