Thomas Edison - Lighting Up the World is a companion historical documentary that accompanies Chapter 6:Spring Break Adventure in The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones. It appears on Disc 9 of Volume 1. It has a run-time of 26 minutes, 52 seconds.
The country was already singing Thomas Edison's praises for his astonishing invention of the phonograph, but that was just one of his many record-breaking number of patents. His greatest ambition was to illuminate modern life not with gas-lamps, but with electricity. The quest for the electric light bulb was filled with controversy and confrontation, and though Edison won the battle of the bulb, the conflict over current would prove to be the biggest challenge.
