Ken Burns' The
Civil War Interactive Videodisc
In Collaboration with Illumina Productions
PBS Video's The Civil War Educator's Enhanced Interactive Videodisc is
based on the film series by Ken Burns. The six laserdisc series, with bar-code
technology, provides a valuable multimedia resource for teachers.
The topics covered in the program include: selected chapters from the film
series, big ideas (causes of the war, freedom, leadership), an archive with
maps, graphs, key words, profiles and audio clips, and appendices with a glossary
of Civil War terms, a timeline, a bibliography, documents and an index.
