Marshall Publishing - The Historic Expedition of Lewis & Clark

From their website:


One of the most significant and dramatic explorations in American history, the journey of Lewis and Clark, stands as a true epic in documented exploration of the West. From 1804 to 1806 Meriwether Lewis and William Clark led the Corps of Discovery on an 8,000 – mile journey into the unknown. Starting at the meeting of the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers, they traveled by foot, boat, and horseback – all the way to the Pacific Ocean and back.

This is the story of that exploration, complete with diary excerpts, encounters with Indians, the sometimes beautiful and sometimes threatening landscape, and a summary of the objectives and accomplishments of this extraordinary team.

Beautiful photography, live re-enactments, illustrated maps and rare photographs make this historical adventure come to life and one that will entertain and educate all age groups for years to come.

The Bentz Test Laboratory loves history.  Our favorite way to learn history is to really see it come to life.  Marshall Publishing does just that with this fantastic video!  We were able to see what the historic expedition of Lewis & Clark was really like. The photography was beautiful, and it was filled with new and interesting facts. The DVD was long enough to give us a great introduction, but short enough to hold everyone's attention (even the "littles")

 Watching this DVD sparked an interest in Lewis & Clark and learning more about them.  Bingo!  Just what I want our media time to do...don't you? 

You will not be disappointed!  Marshall Publishing has numerous titles to choose from - endless inspiration (and not just history - animals, planes, trains, and more!)  Why settle for just reading some boring textbook when you could let your children SEE history? 

 Here's a couple of other titles the TOS Crew reviewed:
The History of the Oregon Trail and The Pony Express DVD
The History of America in the 1880′s – A Decade of Progress DVD
Lots and Lots of Penguins and Their Happy Feet 2 DVD Set of Two DVDs

I was sent a complimentary dvd in exchange for my honest opinion as part of the TOS Review Crew.
