THE WEST – The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

Ready to dig into the Wild West?  What better way than to watch some movies?  Grab some popcorn, a soda, and a comfy chair and check out these short clips from America A Story of Us. You can start to start grabbing some notes about the post Civil War era of the West and record the on your handout.  Spend as as much time as you desire over the long weekend – especially if you are jammed up with NHD!

America, The Story of US – The Transcontinental Railroad

America, The Story of US – Homestead Act

America, The Story of Us – The Cowboy and Cattle Drives

The History Channel – The Buffalo

America, The Story of US – Destroying the Buffalo Herds

America, The Story of Us – Plains Indians Wars

History Channel has some good (and short) videos, including The American Buffalo and The Last of the Sioux

Of course, you could also watch the actual classic – The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. I think it’s on Hulu!
