Summary
First in a three-part series in which acclaimed documentary filmmakers present ten pivotal moments in American history and their often unforeseen repercussions. This segment of four documentary films tells of four events in early U.S. history. The Pequot War, a massacre in Mysic, Conn. on May 26, 1637, set the pattern of possessing Indian land in America. Shays' Rebellion (Jan. 25, 1787) was a protest against debt collection and taxation practices that motivated George Washington to come out of retirement and help strengthen the fragile new nation, leading to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The California gold rush began Jan. 24, 1848, and spurred tremendous financial and physical growth throughout the West. The Civil War battle of Antietam, Sept. 17, 1862, saw 23,000 casualties on both sides, making this the bloodiest day in American history, but the Union victory enabled President Lincoln to issue the Emancipation Proclamation
