It was called the executive mansion when John Adams became the first president to spend the night there. But such a nondescript moniker would never suffice, and soon afterwards (and ever since) it has been known as the White House. The Emmy-award winning SAVE OUR HISTORY series shines the spotlight on the Washington landmark in this ultimate insider's tour of America's most famous home. The story is told through an incredible array of historical documents, first-person testimonials from former presidents, their families, and those who have worked there, and extensive footage and photos stretching back over a century. See how Dolly Madison was spurred to heroism when the British burned the original White House to the ground in 1814, and go along on Jackie Kennedy's famous tour of the redesigned mansion that housed JFK's "Camelot." From the first plans in 1792 to the disruption that will occur when the next president moves in, this is a fascinating, far-ranging look at the White House as it prepares to enter its 3rd century.
