Editorial Reviews

"As the fortieth President of the United States, Ronald Wilson Reagan renewed "America’s confidence and made the world a better place. Known as the "Great Communicator," his unwavering vision of democracy and consummate leadership skills are credited with bringing the Cold War to an end—and guiding the U.S. to new heights of national pride, technological achievement and economic prosperity.

The official Reagan library release, Ronald Reagan: The People’s President is a fitting tribute to the life and legacy of an American icon, including unprecedented coverage and exclusive footage"of Reagan’s history-making memorial and funeral services."

5.0 out of 5 stars A Complete Service December 21, 2004
By Gloria
I bought this DVD from the Reagan Library after watching the coverage of Reagan's funeral service this past summer. I was fascinated and moved by the protocol of a State Funeral and the love that protruded through the Reagan family and this nation for President Reagan. It is rare in our country that a State Funeral occurs and where the entire nation takes a moment to stop and notice. The DVD provides coverage of all services that occurred - (1) US Capitol Rotunda Service, (2) US Capitol Rotunda Depature, (3) National Cathedral Funeral Service, (4) Reagan Library Family Service, and (5) Reagan Library Final Sunset Service. The services were all presented without commentary and allowed me to experience the procession on my own. As a bonus, there is historical footage and photos of President Reagan. In short, this DVD provides a complete and dignified farewell to one of our nation's leaders that can be revisited and shared with future generations to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Honorable Tribute March 3, 2006
Verified Purchase
An exceptionally well done and moving tribute to the greatest leader of the free world we have yet to encounter. This has it all, the full services in Washington to the sunset services at the Reagan Library in CA. A very impressive display of precision and symbolism by the military that is as inspirational as it is emotional. Video and sound is top notch, taking you up close and showing you things unseen by the various cable coverages. The bonus features and photo galleries stand on their own. Beautiful pieces of music throughout. Dutch would have been proud, I know I am.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Review of President Reagan June 30, 2006
Verified Purchase
Reagan was quite a man and I enjoyed the DVD about him. It covered his Presidency beautifully. I find myself watching this recording many times. I just wish he was still around, but thanks to all the material available, I can continue to enjoy watching him. I hope more come out so I can contiue to watch them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thank God for HIm November 24, 2008
"A Shining City on a Hill" That is what Ronald Reagen called Washington "Slipping the surley bonds of Earth to Touch the Face of God" That is what Reagen call the astronauts of the Challenger Seven he became our comforter in times of National Disaters. But for us June 6, 2004 will stand as a day of National Mourning as our 40th president Ronald Wilson Reagen slipped the surrley bonds of earth to touch the face of his savior and have a wonderful moment with god. I was just born as Reagen took office in January of 1981. I was born seven months later in 1981 and a little over 4 months after Reagen was shot in a assassination attempt on his life. I myself got to bear witness to this national event for over the next week it was an amazing television journey watching the man I idolized as a high schooler and now watching him get laid to rest was a moment for me all too surreal. I got to watch the State Funeral an event in itself and it was totally amazing the Right Honorable John Danforth presided over the services a I belive former Senator and now the Reagens Pastor and friend presideing over the "Gippers" funeral service and the song selection was amazing and it was very cool to listen to the amazing songs and Ronan Tynan whom sang them during the services including one of my personal favorites during the services Amazing Grace. It sunk in for me as they left Washington after nearly two days of wonderful services for President Reagen. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Roald Reagain - An Amrican Presidnet May 20, 2010
Verified Purchase
Ronald Reagan stood for all that is good, and was, in fact, all that an American President should be. How fortunate for America to have been blessed with a President such as Ronald Reagan at the time in the history of the world, when such a man was so badly needed. A Republican, he typically stood for all that is good and great in and for the American people.

Such a president is needed in America today!

5.0 out of 5 stars Pres. Reagan is my hero November 11, 2008
By Winston
Verified Purchase
This is a great collection and a must have for Reagan fans. What a larger than life character he was. The funeral process pictured in this DVD was indeed sad but one gets to appreciate the fact that people of different backgrounds came together to say thanks & good-bye to this man. This DVD is so powerful that I kept thinking about it for days after watching it. It's a great collection to my Reagan related DVDs and books. This is a timeless tribute to my hero.
