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

Did you BREAKOUT OF THE WEST, young historian? If not, continue to work on the locks and post your pic on the Wild West Hall of Fame! Also, make sure you are adding to your GBU notes, as we will be debating this concept in our next class!

The West became popular in movies, so why not watch a little bit about the West? Grab some popcorn, a soda, and a comfy chair and check out these short clips from America A Story of Us. Spend as as much time as you desire over the 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!
