Kings and queens may seem fancy and cool to you, but they sure weren’t to Americans living in colonial times! In The History of American Government, young viewers will learn the history behind America’s progression from being ruled by the English monarchy to becoming the democracy it is today. Kids will explore the government of colonial America, George Washington and the American Revolution, and learn why the Founding Fathers thought it important to divide and share powers as they established the foundation for today’s American government.
