(Arts & Entertainment Television Networks, $19.95). Part of the History Channel's Great American Monuments series, this video program presents the colorful history of the tributes built in Washington, D.C., to immortalize three of America's greatest presidents–George Washington (1732-99), Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826), and Abraham Lincoln (1809-65). The film reveals such information as why the Washington Monument, dedicated in 1885, took more than thirty years to build; why Franklin D. Roosevelt (1882-1945) initiated construction of the Thomas Jefferson Memorial during his presidency; and why President Richard M. Nixon (1913-94) paid a middle-of-the-night visit to the Lincoln Memorial. Also included in the series are THE WHITE HOUSE, which offers a rare, inside look at the most cherished house in America, and THE WAR MEMORIALS, which visits the sites in the nation's capital chosen to honor those Americans who died for their country.
