'Legacy Collection: Great Changemakers in America'
(Martin Luther King Jr, John F. Kennedy, Abraham Lincoln, et al / 8-Disc DVD / NR / 2018 / Mill Creek Entertainment)

Overview: Changemakers are described as being relentless, non-partisan and fearless in their pursuit of solving issues to improve the world. No word better describes three of the most influential men who fought for human rights throughout American history: Abraham Lincoln, John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King, Jr.

This expansive documentary collection chronicles their courageous and monumental legacy in the United States and around the world.

DVD Verdict: The truly fascinating MARCH TO FREEDOM is the chronicle of a struggle 400 years in the making. From the first African slaves in the colonies to today, the rights of life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness have been tested throughout the history of America and are examined in this 14-part documentary series (that also includes 'Emancipation Road', a 7-part compelling journey through America's greatest saga.

Part One 1625 - 1863 The Shadows of Slavery
Part Two 1863 - 1870 The Emancipation Proclamation
Part Three 1870 - 1909 Separate But Equal
Part Four 1909 - WWII Regardless of the Color of One's Skin
Part Five 1945 - 1963 The Double Victory
Part Six 1963 - 1968 The Civil Rights Era
Part Seven 1968 - Today Heroes of Hope

In 1860, the nation founded upon an idea that all men are created equal and endowed by their creator with the inalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness had as many as four hundred thousand slave-owners and almost four million slaves.

By denying these rights to more than twelve percent of its population, America would soon pay with the blood of a generation.

The story of African Slavery in America started with the first permanent English Colony in the 17th century ... and ended with the Civil War. But those two hundred and fifty years of struggle were just the beginning. The beginning of a journey down the long Emancipation Road.

Part One 1625 - 1863 The Shadows of Slavery
Part Two 1863 - 1870 The Emancipation Proclamation
Part Three 1870 - 1909 Separate But Equal
Part Four 1909 - WWII Regardless of the Color of One's Skin
Part Five 1945 - 1963 The Double Victory
Part Six 1963 - 1968 The Civil Rights Era
Part Seven 1968 - Today Heroes of Hope

A very detailed and complicated history with a vast amount of statistics detailing the number of slaves and all the locations they came from and went to. Even how they are treated varies and how America generally treated them better than other locations. How any of them lived through it is unbelievable.

We then get to dive into and fully explore the life and times of Abraham Lincoln in ABRAHAM LINCOLN – TRIAL BY FIRE. We witness the stirring events leading up to Lincoln's assassination and the aftermath that quickly followed.

We also discover the power struggle between Lincoln and General George McClellan and unravel the events that lead to the Emancipation Proclamation. Then we uncover the story of the Confederacy's last attack that almost brought the north to its knees!

Also, through full-color, live-action, authentic record learn about the fight for freedom and abolishment of slavery through the eyes of the African-American Civil War Soldier. It truly is an indepth and historical journey through one the most significant times in our nation's history.

This highly indepth 10-part documentary may, admittedly, not be the best chronicle of Mr. Lincoln ever made, but it certainly deserves a place with the best.

The Hal Holbrook segment alone earns this collection that place. Few people today would be willing or able to get themselves around Carl Sanders' marvelous work. This treatment is certainly accessible to nearly everyone and is a pure delight to now be found in this wondrous box-set collection from Mill Creek Entertainment.

Fifty years after his death, John F. Kennedy’s life, legacy and youthful vigor continues to intrigue and enthrall an entire nation! We now get to relive and introduce, to younger generations, the compelling story of this unforgettable leader and the inspired dynasty he left behind in JFK: A NEW WORLD ORDER.

Program 1: Early Years - John F. Kennedy's life through his election as the 35th President of the United States.

Program 2: For All to See - The 1960 Presidential election and the many obstacles, including familial and religious, that Kennedy needed to overcome to win the United States Presidency.

Program 3: New Frontiers - The beginnings of John F. Kennedy's presidency.

Program 4: Doomsday Averted - The Bay of Pigs and The Cuban Missile Crisis, to his proudest achievements, the Limited Nuclear Test Ban Treaty.

Program 5: A Wall of Words - The origins of Soviet-American tensions in the divided city of Berlin from the final days of World War II up through the time of John F. Kennedy's Presidency.

Program 6: War Within & Without Part 1 - Civil Rights, from his record as a senator up though the transformation near the end of his life that would help inspire the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

Program 7: War Within & Without Part 2 - The events in Southeast Asia that eventually led to America's war in Vietnam.

Program 8: Camelot And Beyond - His health and private life, marriage and family, the myth of Camelot, and finally, his assassination and legacy.

Bonus Disc Contents:
1. Kennedy Vs. Nixon Debate
2. Assassination of President John F. Kennedy
3. Funeral Service of President John F. Kennedy
4. Vietnam! Vietnam! by John Ford

If you have seen many of the previous Kennedy documentaries then this might be a disappointment. Then again, if you have little knowledge of the Kennedy administration then this box-set (within a box-set) is very informative.

If you are going to have only one, or very few Kennedy documentaries in your possession, there are better ones out there to pick from, sure, but the bonus disc is worth the price of purchase alone here, trust me! This is a Full Screen Presentation (1.33:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs.
