Did you know that you can stream Ken Burns, "Civil War" through the library's database, American History & Video? It's true! Also showing are newsreels from the early 1940's-1960's; documentaries on jazz, the Alaska Highway, Nixon, Apollo 8, the sixties and much, much more!
American History & Video includes:
Documentaries on historical events, historical people, and key turning points in American history. These documentaries often incorporate contemporaneous footage and photographs; feature interviews with citizens, newsmakers, and other witnesses to history.
Newsreels, routinely shown before feature films in movie houses, were the only way for citizens to see American and foreign events and news during the pre-television era. With contemporaneous footage and coverage of a wide variety of stories—from war and politics, to fashion and sports, and more—newsreels remain a valuable window on American history, society, and culture.
And much more!
