We weren't at all familiar with any of Tennessee's history. We viewed a short film about a very important part of our nation's history. I had studied it in school but never knew much about the "Great Depression" during Roosevelt's "New Deal". We especially enjoyed all of the pictures and news paper clippings from the period. It was an educational... 更多

But we were a... 更多

The people of homestead worked together to build homes and create communities. Very interesting even if you're not a history buff. The tower... 更多

You will find a very informative video, artifacts, and pictures of the people and their achievements. Close reading of some of the documents, letters, and... 更多
