From the most enduring symbol of American freedom, the Statue of Liberty; and the city plans for Washington, D.C., the headquarters of the free world; to the White House, the building that holds more secrets than any other in America – this two-hour special premiere will answer questions and solve conspiracy theories that have long haunted America’s past.

Are there hidden signs of the devil all over Washington, D.C.? Was the Statue of Liberty a covert plan to promote French democracy and the clandestine society of the Freemasons? Is the American dollar bill covered in secret satanic symbols?

As many conspiracy theorists have long believed, American history is riddled with hidden meanings, stories of secret societies and political intrigue. SECRET AMERICA sheds light on unsolved mysteries of American leaders, monuments and national emblems that laid the foundation of America as we know it.
