Exploring Wisconsin, Our Home - Where We Came From
From YouTube, produced by The Educational Communications Board
Where We Came From - People have immigrated to Wisconsin for many reasons. Some are "pushed" from their homes because of famines, wars, or poverty. Some are "pulled" to new areas because of greater opportunities, availability of land, and freedom from oppression. Although many Native American citizens' roots may extend through more than two centuries of Wisconsin's history, most of the people who settled Wisconsin were influenced by these push-pull factors. Immigration cycles create ethnic pockets of settlement, which gradually disperse as assimilation takes place. This program explores some of the reasons why people came to Wisconsin, where they settled, why they stayed, and the lasting impressions immigration continues to have on the state. (14:02)

Freedom and Religion: "The May-Pole of Merry Mount" by Nathaniel Hawthorne
From vimeo.com, produced by What So Proudly We Hail
Nathaniel Hawthorne (1804-1864), novelist and short story writer, was born in Salem, Massachusetts into an old, established New England family. His great-great-grandfather, John Hathorne, was one of the judges who presided over the Salem Witch Trials; it is said that young Hawthorne added the “w” to his birth surname, “Hathorne,” in order to distance himself from this infamous ancestor. Few American authors have written more searchingly and profoundly about the American character. Enduring moral and religious questions, as they emerged in the life of the Puritans and their New England descendants, are the focus of many of Hawthorne’s writings, including his masterpiece, The Scarlet Letter. His marvelously crafted stories also take us deeply into the American soul, with its dark motives, conflicting aspirations, and moral struggles. “The May-Pole of Merry-Mount,” one such story, appeared in his first published collection of stories, Twice Told Tales (1837). Said by the author to be a “sort of allegory,” it depicts an early version of the culture wars, between a party of otherworldly piety or “gloom” (the Puritans) and a party of pleasure or “jollity” (the Merry-Mounters). The cultural struggles between the two outlooks on life appear to be deeply embedded in the American grain.Watch editors Amy A. Kass and Leon R. Kass converse with guest host Yuval Levin (National Affairs) about the story. For discussion guides and more, visit whatsoproudlywehail.org/curriculum/the-meaning-of-america/freedom-and-religion.

Archdukes, Cynicism, and World War I: Crash Course World History #36
From YouTube, produced by crashcourse
In which John Green teaches you about the war that was supposed to end all wars. Instead, it solved nothing and set the stage for the world to be back at war just a couple of decades later. As an added bonus, World War I changed the way people look at the world, and normalized cynicism and irony. John will teach you how the assassination of an Austrian Archduke kicked off a new kind of war that involved more nations and more people than any war that came before. New technology like machine guns, airplanes, tanks, and poison gas made the killing more efficient than ever. Trench warfare and modern weapons led to battles in which tens of thousands of soldiers were killed in a day, with no ground gained for either side. World War I washed away the last vestiges of 19th century Romanticism and paved the way for the 20th century modernism that we all know and find to be cold and off-putting. While there may not be much upside to WWI, at least it inspired George M. Cohan to write the awesome song, "Over There." (11:45)

Wartime Propaganda
From hippocampus.org, produced by University of California
The federal government did not repeat the mistakes of the First World War, when doughboys marched off to fight "the war to end all wars." During the earlier conflict, the government entered into a high-powered propaganda campaign that proclaimed America was striving "to make the world safe for democracy." George Creel headed the Committee on Public Information, which turned out crude propaganda that demonized the enemy, particularly the German "Huns." One film that captured the mood was titled The Beast of Berlin. Following the First World War, disillusionment set in when it became clear that the great democratic crusade had failed to bring lasting peace.

Crash Course: Chapter 10 - Inflation (1 of 2)
From YouTube, produced by Chris Martenson
Chapter 10 (Inflation - Part 1 of 2): Dr. Martenson establishes inflation as a monetary phenomenon, defined as the decrease of the value of money, caused by too much money around in relation to goods and services. From 1665 to 1776, 111 years, there was absolutely no inflation. From 1665 to 1905, 240 years, the cost of living stayed roughly the same, aside from brief jumps during wars. Unfortunately for us, there was no settling in terms of inflation after World War I or World War II. The military apparatus was not dismantled, and inflation has accelerated to astonishingly high levels. (9:17)

World War I - Weapons and Technology
From watchmojo.com, produced by WatchMojo
Though they may seem primitive today, the weapons and technology used during World War I completely revolutionized the way wars were fought. These weapons and technologies also had a significant impact on the outcome of the war. From the use of machine guns and bolt-action rifles, to the popularization of grenades, poison gas and finally tanks, World War I set the stage for all wars that followed it. This war also helped troubleshoot many of the problems with these technologies, helping streamline warfare for years to come. In Part 6 of our series on WWI, WatchMojo learns more about the weapons and technology used during the First World War. (01:59)

Harlem in Montmartre: Notes on the French Contribution to Jazz
From YouTube, produced by The New School NYC
Charles Hobson, producer of the PBS Great Performances program Harlem in Montmartre, brings to The New School the story of the jazz age in Paris between the First and Second World Wars, a fascinating but neglected piece of African American history. Inspired by William A. Shacks book of the same title, his documentary contains rare archival performance footage of James Europe, Josephine Baker, Sidney Bechet, Bricktop, Eugene Bullard, Django Reinhardt, and many more. Using photographs and film clips from the 1920s and 30s, Mr. Hobson discusses his film and the extraordinary role played by French artists and intellectuals in advancing the acceptance of jazz as a serious art form.

Richard the Lionheart - Absent King
From awesomestories.com, produced by BBC's series "Heroes and Villains
This ten minute video clip is a recreation of part of the life of RIchard I, son of Henry II and Eleanor of Aquitaine, who reigned in Britain between 1188-1198.  Most of that time he was out of the country, fighting battles and wars. He earned his nickname - Richard the Lionheart - during the Third Crusade.  Initially accustomed to sieges, not battles, Richard surprised Saladin - conqueror of Jerusalem - when he decided to engage in actual warfare.  Throughout history, Richard I has been greatly honored and greatly vilified. This video is for older students and provides some insights into what life was like at that time and the thinking and motivation of Richard.
