There is a lot left out. Not to say that they have to fit everything in, obviously..

Do they at any point acknowledge that what our ancestors did to the natives was no less than genocide?

hmm

I only saw a bit of it, honestly.. The part that annoyed me is the civil war stuff. Yeah great, they spoke about slavery, but they ignored the point that that wasn't the initial issue of the civil war. That was a later fact, but the only one anyone remembers because it was a big diversion at the time. It worked.

Obviously I am glad that slavery is illegal now and all of that. That isn't what bothers me. We can't forget that the initial reason for the war was the federal government was wanting too much control.
