The following videos illustrate the Civil War and American History.

Take the Journey:  A project of The Hallowed Ground Initiative.  Videos produced by and for Middle School students about the Civil War and American History.

One of their videos we particularly enjoyed was…

Fifth New York Zouaves: A video about the flamboyant but tough elite fighting unit.

The American Civil War Everyday: An animated map that shows the day to day shifting of the battle lines of the Eastern and Western Theaters.

 Ruthanne Lum McCuun on Chinese Yankee:  The author speaks at the San Francisco Public library about her book on Thomas Sylvanus aka Yee Ah Way.

The Slave Dwelling Project: Joe McGill of the National Trust for Historic Places spends the night in a historic Slave Dwelling.  Good for the visual presentation of the house.

Thaddeus Stevens: America’s Forgotten Hero : A short documentary on one of the leading Abolitionists of the Civil War era.
