This may be a little off topic - don't know - but Netflix has loads of documentaries, quite a few of which are historical. It's not free, but it's fairly cheap.

EDIT: Netflix has hiked their prices quite a bit since I wrote this.

Search on Youtube for The American Heritage Series by David Barton. It is one of the best and most thorough breakdowns of American history not taught in the schools.

I have been researching old documents, and comparing them with newer ones. (old dictionaries with new ones, original Constitution with amended one, older text books with newer ones. ext). I am totally blown away with what I am discovering.

Our Founding Fathers and history was definitely not perfect, but it is no where near as bad as we have been taught. Many word definitions from the time of our Founding Fathers to now have a totally opposite definition making understanding of the Constitution all askew.
