Marshall Publishing

Marshall Publishing has a number of DVD's, books, CD's, CD-ROM's available.  Last year we had the pleasure of reviewing their Lots and Lots of Firetrucks.  So this year when they came up as a review product we were excited.   We were sent America in the 1880's.  This is an hour long DVD full of tidbits of things that happened in this decade.  Some of the things covered was:
Alexander Graham Bell
Thomas Edison
Sitting Bull
Kodak camera
Brooklyn Bridge
Sports figures
Civil Rights and much more.
This DVD and many more is available from their website. 
America in the 1880's is $24.95 but is on sale for $19.95.  You can also get free shipping using TOS27 code at checkout.  This video is enjoyable for all ages.  We all enjoyed watching this.
Our Thoughts:
We did enjoy this video.  Since we are using The Little House books this year this fit right in.  I would have liked it a little bit better if the subjects hadn't gone through so fast.  But I realize with so much to cover there would have to be a whole series not just one DVD.  As we get to the particular subject we watch that portion again and study it on our own.  This is really a great addition to our video library.  Our favorite topic is of course the Kodak camera.  Especially since we live in the Rochester NY area.  We are planning on a visit to George Eastman's house.  We have been to his childhood home which is now at the Genesee Country Village and Museum. 
If you want to see what the other members of the crew said about this and the other videos reviewed.  Please go on over to the crew blog.
