Robert E. Lee

Loading...
Robert E. Lee, the leading Confederate general of the American Civil War, remains a source of fascination and, for some, veneration. This film examines the life and reputation of the general, whose military successes made him the scourge of the Union and the hero of the Confederacy, and who was elevated to almost god-like status by his admirers after his death.

Man, Moment, Machine: Lincoln & the Flying Spying Machine

Loading...
"The Civil War isn't typically associated with high-tech equipment, but in 1862 the Union Army introduced an amazing surveillance device that foretold the future of fancy spy gear. This History Channel episode analyzes the device--a hydrogen balloon attached to a telegraph--and chronicles President Lincoln's involvement with its invention and deployment."--History Channel.

Charlotte Forten's Mission [electronic resource]

This is the story of a heroine - perhaps not a traditional heroine, for one would not necessarily look upon a young, frail-of-health, free black woman from a well-to-do Philadelphia family in Civil War times as someone who would implicitly inspire the word "heroine." But then Charlotte Forten was an extraordinary young woman. As a part of President Lincoln's "great experiment", she journeyed south to Sea Island, where she sought to give newly freed black children a decent education and the chance for a better life. In many ways the story is as remarkable as the lady who lived it. For Charlotte Forten's Mission is the inspiring true story of one woman's courage and determination during the time of the Civil War - a world torn apart by the fear and prejudice.

A Bus for Martin Luther King

Early 20th century in the U.S. South. Segregation against the black community is rife. The Ku Klux Klan, Jim Crow laws—all this finds form in daily life via ethnic separation in public places, schools, public transport, public drinking fountains, and on and on. In buses, for example, seats at the front are reserved for whites. Rosa Parks, a seamstress, lives in the city of Montgomery, Alabama, and has suffered from this social context ever since childhood. On December 1, 1955, she refuses to obey the driver of the bus she is on and give up her seat to a white passenger as laid down by the law. Arrested and jailed, she becomes the symbol of the Afro-American cause, and a young pastor, Martin Luther King, seizes on the event and starts a boycott of the city’s buses. Demonstrations, spe [...]
