This re-enactment of the Battle of Gettysburg was was shot ten years ago on October 30, 1997. Approximately sixty sixth-grade students from Griffin Creek Elementary School battled it out on the Henrichs' farm, just outside of Medford, OR. Three news teams reported on the event (one newspaper, two television). It took close to 7 weeks for students to research, storyboard, and prepare the shoot. Many parents gave hours of their time preparing the costumes, weapons, food, and notifying the media. It was one of my favorite units. Be sure to check out the news reports in the accompanying video. These ancient titles were generated in MS Publisher and recorded holding a camcorder up to the computer screen :-)
