Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this educational series offers visually graphic reenactments of American historical events. People are shown being shot, blown up, stabbed with bayonets, etc. (bloody wounds and dead corpses visible). There are also brief discussions about prostitution, cannibalism, slavery, Native American displacement, disease, starvation, and other strong topics. All these themes are offered within a historical context, but may be a little disturbing to younger and/or sensitive viewers.

Sexual Content

Contains some discussion about prostitution as a result of historical events.

Violence

Contains lots of dramatically violent scenes of riots, rebellion, and battles. Muskets, guns, rifles, bayonets, bullets, cannons, etc. are frequently shown being used to kill during battles and guerilla attacks. People are also shown being burned at the stake. Bloody wounds and dead corpses are visible. All of this is offered in a historical context.

Language

Not applicable

Social Behavior

The series offers extensive but relatively neutral discussions about the events that have made America the country that it is today.

Consumerism

Bank of America is a major sponsor of the show; in between show segments commercials that look like part of the series are shown. Valspar paint is also a sponsor.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

The role of tobacco production on America's early economy is discussed. The consumption of alcoholic beverages (rum, ale) is sometimes shown (and/or talked about). Drug use and addiction, as it relates to history, comes up.
