War in the '60s - A Civil War Documentary

When Arkansas seceded from the Union on May 6, 1861, it was a divided state, politically and economically. During the war, it was the site of major military engagements such as the Battle of Pea Ridge, which effectively saved Missouri for the Union, and the Battle of Prairie Grove, the bloodiest conflict west of the Mississippi River. It was also one of the most difficult places for civilians to live, as both armies devoured or destroyed everything in their paths.

This course features War in the '60s, an hour-long documentary film that recounts the military history and the human story of what happened in Arkansas during the American civil war. Through interviews with historians, and the words of soldiers and Arkansas citizens who experienced the war, the documentary helps viewers understand what it was like to live in Arkansas during this tragic time in America's history, and how the war changed the state forever.

Photographed in locations across the state, War in the '60s is the last film produced by Jack Hill, one of the most prolific documentarians of Arkansas history, and the first full-length piece on Civil War Arkansas in more than 20 years. Jack Hill died in July 2012.

This course meets the scheduled Arkansas history requirement as set forth in the Rules Governing Professional Development and required by Act 969 of 2013.

Sanatorium Hill

From 1910-1972, Arkansas State law mandated that victims of tuberculosis (TB) be isolated in a sanatorium located in Booneville, Arkansas. Some patients returned home, free of their symptoms. Others died there, either of the disease or of the gruesome operations prescribed by the doctors. This course features Sanatorium Hill, a documentary that tells the story of patients who survived the morbid treatments, recovered from the disease of TB, but were unable to forget the pain, suffering and despair.

This course meets the scheduled Arkansas history requirement as set forth in the Rules Governing Professional Development and required by Act 969 of 2013.

Dream Land: Little Rock's West 9th Street

After their families were dropped off in Arkansas and forced to start new lives with nothing but determination and the instinct to survive, former slaves erected Blissville, a part of Little Rock that would become their safe haven. Over time, this area became a part of West 9th Street known as "The Line." Merchants and patrons of The Line created a mecca of business and entertainment despite racism, segregation, and destruction. Today, Taborian Hall is the last original structure on West 9th Street. Eventually, implications of federal programs such as Urban Renewal, school desegregation, the Housing Act of 1949, and the Eisenhower Interstate Program left the district barren and broken for business owners and residents as they helplessly witnessed the destruction. Taborian Hall, restored as Arkansas Flag and Banner, stands as the crown jewel that remains as part of a once vibrant community.

This course features the Emmy Award-winning AETN documentary, Dream Land: Little Rock's West 9th Street. The documentary seeks to recognize, memorialize, and share the history of West 9th Street and Dreamland Ballroom, and is filled with historic photographs and personal stories of Arkansans who once lived in the community. An educator guide and standards alignment document is provided as a resource within this course for middle and secondary teachers who wish to use Dreamland in the classroom. 

This course meets the scheduled Arkansas history requirement as set forth in the Rules Governing Professional Development and required by Act 969 of 2013.

Men and Women of Distinction: Mike Beebe

Former Governor Mike Beebe comes from humble beginnings in Amagon, Arkansas. He spent his youth traveling the states with his mother before graduating from Newport High School in Newport, Arkansas, then going on to study political science at Arkansas State University. After earning a law degree from the University of Arkansas School of Law, he joined a small law practice in Searcy, Arkansas, where he met his wife, Ginger. Shortly after starting a successful law career, Beebe sought out a seat on the Arkansas Senate - a seat that was uncontested for his twenty-year tenure. Mike Beebe's time in the Senate was just the beginning of his career in politics. This course breaks down his childhood, his time as a lawyer, his early political accomplishments, and, finally, his two distinguished terms as Governor of Arkansas.
