Community Roots Clips
Free Interviews with Historians, or an Interviewee's Perspective on Their Local Community
History isn't just about famous leaders; it is about everyday people who build the fabric of our nation. Our community roots are an important area to explore, as they tell us more about ourselves and our family and friends. From the front porch to the courthouse, we will be exploring everyday people in our communities, while finding out so much fascinating information about our ancestors and the way they lived.
Just like the roots of your family tree have shaped who you are, the roots of our communities have helped to shape our towns and people today. Perhaps these people are not famous heroes, but they are builders of our country, who all worked, lived, and dreamed together, to create communities in which they could be proud to reside in. From the front porches of the men and women of another generation, we bring you the lives and stories of those that have contributed to who we are.
See interviews from people in all areas and situations of life. See what it was like for a man working for the railroad or wives and children of soldiers, who strove to maintain their homes and towns while so many men left to fight in the wars. Hear interviews of men and women whose heroism at home built, strengthened, and unified our communities through wars, depressions, hardships, failures, successes, and triumphs. These fascinating stories from people in many different and unique situations are also a wonderful resource for understanding a time gone by.
These men and women, who have helped to shape history by surviving through hard and good times, have so much to share and give us insight into our own ancestry and the towns we live in. So much went into the creation of homes, towns, and lives, and this is an important link in our history that shouldn't be lost or forgotten. Historical Truth 101 has made an effort to preserve these wonderful memories and stories as a historical resource and treasured heritage.
