Movies about World War II are popular in Hollywood. But movies about the Revolutionary War? Not so much.
It seems films about America’s founding are few and far between — especially on the big screen.
That’s OK, though, because Americans can celebrate their history and feel a sense of patriotism by watching movies set in other times, including the 1800s and 1900s.
Some films in this category will make you want to sing, while others are reminders of the heroes who challenged America to live up to the ideals found in the Declaration of Independence and Constitution. All, though, are inspiring.
Several titles include rough content that can be cleaned up for families with services such as ClearPlay, VidAngel or Vudu.
Here, then, are 12 patriotic movies and television series that will make you proud to be an American.
