The Words That Built America

The Words That Built America

The Declaration of Independence, The U.S. Constitution and The Bill of Rights represent much more than just words used by America's Founding Fathers--they are the living, breathing realization of America's democratic ideal. To celebrate these iconic documents, HBO presents this special, directed by Alexandra Pelosi and narrated by David McCullough ('John Adams'), in which dozens of Americans--actors, media personalities, politicians, lawmakers, presidents, and even schoolchildren--read the three the words that define our outlook on life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
