Thought I'd give everyone a head start on movies you might like to consider watching that portray part of the American story. We checked over a dozen websites for their lists of patriotic movies and this is a compilation of some of those and their descriptions (not ours).
After scrawny everyman Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) is deemed unfit for military service during World War II, he signs up for a top-secret project that physically transforms him into a Nazi-fighting superhero.
Mr. Smith Goes to Washington (Sony Pictures Home Entertainment)
Idealistic Jefferson Smith (Jimmy Stewart) is appointed on a lark to fill a vacancy in the U.S. Senate. He's confronted with crooked politicians and corrupt practices in Washington, but he refuses to give up fighting for a democratic government, for the people and by the people. The Oscar-winning film was attacked by Congress at the time, but is now hailed as a quintessential whistleblower film that shows deep love for America's democratic heritage.
