              I found this Ken Burns production to be of the highest quality and about a very crucial educational principle. I gave one copy to my grandkids and one to my local school.

              Grandkids really liked it, I have yet to hear from the school except for the kind expression of thanks from the principal.

                    I got this DVD for my boss' birthday which is in December. I'm sure she'll like it. I had no idea that this school existed which makes this program all the more fascinating. The first school I went to was similar to this but this school is very different from mine. And leave it to the great Ken Burns to produce another great piece of work, which this is!. Very inspiring program!.

                          I was surprised by this film, expecting it to be about the Gettysburg Address. It's really about kids at a special school. This movie taught me to never, ever give up on kids.

                          This is a unique film focusing on the Gettysburg Address and students with challenges learning to memorize Lincoln's speech. It is inspiring. You felt like you get to know the boys and you very much want them to succeed. I highly recommend it.

                          Really Eye Opening

                          Comments about PBS Ken Burns: The Address DVD:

                          Being a Lincoln fan, I thought I was buying a new DVD about the Gettysburg Address. I did get more than I bargained for! The school and their teaching methods are wonderful and it is too bad that other schools do not teach history the way this school does. This DVD bridged the age generation of 150 years and it shows that every child can learn. The fact they use the Gettysburg Address makes it even more imoressive. This video made me proud of the past history of this country and it made me so proud for the young men and theri families that others thought were nit "normal" GREAT DVD!!!!
