  • Kevin,
    I was enchanted to see this posted, so enchanted that I just watched all three of them for the first time since my years at Harrison Elementary. I’m sure we could all cavil about particular points, but I found it a remarkably intelligent presentation for young children. I can’t help but wonder, what do fifth and sixth graders see now? Thanks a million for posting this.

    • Marianne,

      Glad to hear you enjoyed watching this once again. We could spend hours interpreting this in light of the civil war centennial and civil rights movement, but I can easily see how it might spark the imagination of young students.

  • Great Film too bad it is not used today!
