Plot Synopsis

Executive produced by Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Davisson and Stephen David, THE MEN WHO BUILT AMERICA: FRONTIERSMEN is a four-part, eight-hour docuseries that tells the stories of the adventurous trailblazers, from Davy Crockett to Lewis and Clark, who set forth across the land to transform people from colonists to revolutionaries to Americans. Featuring dramatized portrayals of frontier icons interlaced with exclusive interviews with experts and survivalists, this series spans a formative period of history chronicling the first 75 volatile years of the United States -- from the Revolution through the California Gold Rush -- where Daniel Boone, Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, John Fremont, Davy Crockett and Andrew Jackson set forth across uncharted land with determination and self-reliance.
On Wednesday, March 28, 2018 from 9-11pm ET/PT, History premiered, "Empire of Liberty," the finale of THE MEN WHO BUILT AMERICA: FRONTIERSMEN. Davy Crockett makes a stand at The Alamo; President Polk risks war with Britain and Mexico, sending John Fr mont and Kit Carson on a secret mission that ignites a war for California and the Pacific.
