The Men Who Built America: Frontiersmen Season 2 Plot: What is it about?
The Men Who Built America: Frontiersmen is an English documentary biography shot in Wellington that gives complete details of the initial 75 years of the United States that includes the period between the Revolution to the famous California Gold Rush. This is the period where legendary daredevils like Daniel Boone, Lewis&Clark, Davy Crocket and Andrew Jackson set their feet on the unclaimed soil with grit and conviction to form a settlement. The dramatised characters of these great men are played with dedication by the cast of the show. The show portrays the American Revolutionary War in a detailed and clear way and shows exactly how Daniel Boone placed his life at risk to earn a settlement in America. The show is more a tribute to the great reformers who set the way for the future revolutionised America.
The show also narrates how Lewis and Clarke made their successful expedition in the Pacific Ocean and how Tecumseh gloriously united the ever fighting native American tribes to stop the expansion that could develop complicated civil and social issues. The rivalry between Davy Crockett and General Andrew Jackson as a result of the latter’s ways to secure the frontier also makes things difficult for the American settlement. The final episode of the first season explains Davy Crockett‘s decision at The Alamo and the hidden mission of Kit Carson and John Fremont that catalyzes a war seeking California and the Pacific. The network has not revealed if they would like to go for another season or not.
