Attention, teachers and other history lovers!

The Battle of Fort Dearborn took place just 200 years ago, on August 15,
1812. This battle was an overwhelming victory for Tecumseh and his followers,
who were seeking revenge for the Battle of Tippecanoe.

A new YouTube video lesson—"Fort Dearborn in Five Minutes"—honors
this bicentennial.



http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_BE8yxcj2xI&feature=plcp

The video is a fast overview of the American settlement at Chicago, the effects
of the Battle of Tippecanoe, and Hull's campaign at the start of the War of
1812. It shows how the attack on Fort Dearborn fit into that larger picture and
describes what happened during and after the battle and after the war. The
program concludes with photos of the battle sites today.

Like the other programs on the AllAmericanAlmanac channel, this video
contains suggested homework assignments that lead to deeper learning.

I hope you and your students will enjoy and learn from these programs and be
inspired to produce similar history lessons of your own.
