This Day in History September 7: United States Nicknamed Uncle Sam
From history.com, produced by history channel
On this day in 1813, the United States gets its nickname, Uncle Sam. The name is linked to Samuel Wilson, a meat packer from Troy, New York, who supplied barrels of beef to the United States Army during the War of 1812. Wilson (1766-1854) stamped the barrels with "U.S." for United States, but soldiers began referring to the grub as "Uncle Sam's." The local newspaper picked up on the story and Uncle Sam eventually gained widespread acceptance as the nickname for the U.S. federal government. (1:00)

Lewis and Clark's Expedition to the West
From hippocampus.org, produced by University of California
Video accompanied by text. "The Louisiana Purchase offered the United States much needed room to grow and access to an abundance of natural resources, waterways, and fertile farmland. Countless opportunities awaited the Americans, but they would first have to locate them. The Louisiana Territory was so large that France could not accurately define its contents or borders. Jefferson took advantage of the ambiguous agreement and asserted that it included the Missouri River, western Florida, New Orleans, and all of present-day Texas.
To evaluate the purchase, Jefferson planned an expedition. As a scientist, he wanted to know about the plants, animals, geographical layout, and inhabitants of the region. More importantly, however, the president was hoping to find a water route to connect the Mississippi River with the Pacific Ocean, and he expanded the expedition to investigate regions beyond Louisiana..."

Andrew Jackson: Reinventing the Presidency
From YouTube
Video discusses how Jackson fought in the Revolutionary War when he was just thirteen, how Jackson led the American army to the most surprising victory in its history in the Battle of New Orleans, how Jackson was the first great champion of the common white man -- but also "owned" over a hundred black Americans; how Jackson dramatically expanded the United States -- by brutally wresting vast regions of the south from Native Americans; how Jackson, in one of the boldest political strokes in history, founded the Democratic Party -- and yet was viewed by his enemies as an American Napoleon. The film concludes with the words of Jackson's first biographer, "Andrew Jackson was a patriot, and a traitor. He was the greatest of generals, and wholly ignorant of the art of war. He was the most candid of men, and capable of the profoundest dissimulation. He was a democratic autocrat, an urbane savage, an atrocious saint."

Delaware Is Great

What's so special about Delaware? Narrator sings a song about the state of Delaware.  The song consists of the facts and interesting things to do in the state.  It gives some of the history, the first state, and how big the state is.  Video is a series of pictures that go with the words of the song.  Pictures repeat themselves, song is somewhat annoying, but it gets the information across.  Video is minimal quality, would be good for students studying the state of Delaware or regions of the United States.

Uninsured in the Mississippi Delta
From snagfilms.com, produced by Katie Falkenberg
At a time when the health care debate is at the forefront of the political agenda, Uninsured in the Mississippi Delta puts a human face on the struggles of the 46 million Americans surviving without health care.

The Mississippi Delta is one of the most impoverished and uninsured regions of the United States. The area also has soaring rates for diabetes, hypertension and stroke, and some of the highest mortality rates and lowest birth rates in the nation. The town of Greenville, Mississippi, in the heart of the Delta, has, on a per-capita basis, the highest number of uninsured households in the country.

This film could be useful--most likely in a high school or higher education classroom--when discussing Mississippi culture and/or Mississippi history. Alternately, it would be a good video to introduce the concept of health care and the government's role in it. (05:42)

The States' Plans - The Virginia and the New Jersey Plans
From hippocampus.org, produced by University of California
This video about the Philadelphia convention is accompanied by text. "Since the delegates at the Philadelphia Convention decided to throw out the Articles of Confederation, the floor was opened to suggestions for the basic structure of the new government. Edmund Randolph, representing Virginia, proposed a plan largely devised by James Madison. Madison, who felt that Randolph was a more powerful speaker and would be better able to gain support for the plan, suggested a bicameral, or two-house, legislature. This legislature would be charged with selecting a president of the United States as well as court officials for a federal judicial system..."
