How We Became America: The Untold History

Less than 10 minutes

Brought to you by

American Battlefield Trust

Cost

“Untold” is a free collection of short, compelling, history videos and animations designed to: engage new audiences in a new conversation; shine a light on the stories that don’t always make it into the classroom; and question what we think we know about those that do. Not everything worth knowing exists inside the cover of our history textbooks. “Untold” is here to fill in the gaps and bring new stories to life.

The American Battlefield Trust is debuting a 15-part installment in the “Untold” series focused on topics in civics and the founding era/first 100 years of America.

Videos in partnership with Driving Force Institute for Public Engagement’s “Untold” DFI initiative, produced and distributed by Makematic and the University of Southern California’s Center for Engagement-Driven Global Education
