Woodrow Wilson | 2001
Biographical documentary of President Woodrow Wilson. In Part 1, Wilson rises from a Civil boyhood in Georgia to become president of Princeton University and an outspoken champion of progressive reform. He is elected governor of New Jersey, then narrowly wins the presidency, accomplishing a remarkable agenda of reform in his first two years. In Part 2, President Wilson leads the United States through World War I, then brokers its peace treaty. His vision of world peace through the League of Nations is struck down at home, and his health suffers so seriously that his wife becomes de facto chief executive.
