Memory of The Civil War Through Film

By Isabelle Titcomb, VI Form
Memory of The Civil War Through Film

The History Fellowship class began the unit studying the memorialization of the American Civil War. This unit ended with a final project that investigates a specific example of Civil War memorialization and its impact on society. I decided to explore the memorialization of American slavery and the Civil War by comparing the political and social undertones of the film Gone With The Wind (1939) and the film 12 Years A Slave (2013).
