What They're Saying About Witnessing History

Witnessing History is admirably named. One is invited to encounter historical events as if at first hand, not as a passive spectator, but as one involved in the critical process of discovering evidence, contextualizing it, analyzing it, and ultimately translating it into understanding and meaning. The films that provide the material for this process are themselves first-rate pieces of scholarship…

FRANK RUSSELL
PROFESSOR OF HISTORY, TRANSYLVANIA UNIVERSITY

Under the expert guidance of Kent Masterson Brown, Witnessing History provides outstanding resources that address the woeful ignorance of our national history. As a high school history teacher I am excited about the videos and teaching guides that enable me to better prepare my students not just for graduation, but for more informed participation in this grand experiment in democracy.

WHY NOW?

Significant segments of the U.S. population have a keen interest in learning about the true history of critical periods in the formation and development of our nation.

The general public, especially our children and young adults in the midst of the so-called “culture wars”, need to be exposed to the founding principles that guided the formation of the world’s greatest democracy and the sacrifices and hardships our forebearers endured. We believe that the future of our Republic hangs in the balance of a true understanding of, and appreciation for, the basic tenets upon which America was established.
