AMERICA’S TREASURES REVIEWED

“America’s Treasures” was a 12-part documentary series dedicated to highlighting America’s greatest monuments and parks. The series frames the Treasures as directly related to Roosevelt passing the Antiquities Acts of 1906. What Teddy Roosevelt did back in the day was save natural beauty for the benefit of the American people. It could only be done in a time when a frontier seemed endless and corporations weren’t killing themselves to dominate every inch of free land. This is a lovely release, but I wanted a bit more history rather than a visual feast. Oh well, hopefully they make a follow-up series.
