Excellent documentary, but really appropriate for late elementary through middle school ages. I'm glad I'm not a student of the brainwasher who commented on October 10, 2015. I definitely do not agree with the drivel this person posted..

Self-aggrandizing imperialistic crap that re-inforces the view of Manifest Destiny. Woe to any people who stand in their way! I'd show this movie to my students to teach them to critically analyze it for the simplistic, racist, English only, white, male-centric viewpoint.
