The Presidents

American presidents hold the most powerful office on earth and occupy a unique place at the center of national and world events. At once chief executive, head of state, commander-in-chief, and leader of a political party, the President of the United States is also a prominent cultural figure, and a bellwether of the society he governs.

In this award-winning collection, AMERICAN EXPERIENCE offers 37 hours of streaming documentaries on nine 20th-Century American presidents. Also, read biographies of every U.S. President, and browse original interviews, articles, photo galleries, timelines and extensive teacher guides.
