The Mexican-American War DVD - At a time when immigration reform continues to be one of the most heated topics in political and business circles, this feature-length special reexamines the controversial war that resulted in the United States taking control of what was nearly half of Mexico's territory. Featuring lavish reenactments, and interviews with both Mexican and American historians to ensure accuracy from both nations' points of view, we convey the story of President James K. Polk's desire to expand US territory to the Pacific Ocean. Hosted by boxing legend Oscar de la Hoya, we also travel to Mexico City to visit the historic Castillo de Chapultepec, where the climactic battle of the war took place, and the Palacio Nacional, the home of Mexico's government.
Alamo DVD - Remember the Alamo is one of the most famous historical phrases in U.S. history. Glorified in books, movies and TV, the last stand at the Alamo will now be seen as never before. Bill Chemerka, founder of the Alamo Historical Society, helps re-create a view from above that was impossible to see in 1836. Chermerka's encyclopedic knowledge of all things Alamo, a site tour to the Alamo, and stories shared by the descendents of the event, combined with CGI and ""green screen"" movie special effects, combine to create an aerial view of the final moments of the attack, as the Texans made their last stand.
