        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

        By Michael

        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!!!!

        Educational and heartwarming

        Comments about PBS Ken Burns: The Address DVD:

        As a grandparent of a child with Dyslexia and Dysgraphia, I found this story inspiring. Also revealing...although we read much about both learning difficulties, it is much more powerful to watch this story and to experience with the students their struggles and successes. I only wish I could order the DVD but it is unavailable to us in Canada.

        What a great example of valuing every student and giving them the opportunity to value themselves. An outstanding project for greater understanding of basic American values and how we attained what we have as a nation.
