While I was in Gettysburg this past June for the CWI I took a few minutes to record a Civil War Trust Civil War in4 video with Garry Adelman on Civil War memory. I was way over-prepared and incredibly nervous. Let’s just say that I found it very difficult to whittle down this vast subject into a four minute segment, but somehow the editors managed to create some level of coherence out of the full recording.

Thanks so much to Garry for giving me my shot at stardom. I hope this serves as a useful introduction for teachers who are looking to introduce the subject to their middle school and high school classrooms. Finally, you need not worry as I promise not to quite my day job.

    • I think it was due to trying to reduce the topic down to its bare essentials.

      • Yes – a near impossible task. I think you did a pretty good job of getting the points in with a four-minute video. I thought the editing was cool too. I was not familiar with this series until now – I will have to check it out.

Now that you've read the post, share your thoughts.
