This year in school, the oldest is learning about American History and the other children are learning about Ancient History. In lieu of studying American History, we chose to watch a movie about the civil war today, Gods and Generals, and ALL the kids sat glued to the television with lots of discussion afterwards. Don loves anything about the civil war and has also been watching a great documentary called, Ken Burns on the Civil War. If you get a chance to watch either of these, I highly recommend them. Another great television resource on American History has been Liberty's Kids. Do you have any favorite books or movies that you have been able to enjoy as a family that are about American History?
