American History

View a movie from the list below based on the time period we are discussing in the course, and write a paper that reviews the film and analyzes the historical accuracy of the events portrayed.  This is not a summary of the movie, but instead an analysis of its historical accuracy. Do not pull a movie review from the internet.  You may use the first person voice (I, me, you, we, etc.) in this paper. It is due by end of Unit 8.

Films to choose from:

  • The Alamo (1960 or 2004)
  • Amistad (1997)
  • Glory (1989)
  • The Patriot (2000)
  • John Adams (2008) HBO Miniseries
  • Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee (2007)
  • Gettysburg (1993)
  • Gangs of New York (2002)

If you have another movie you are interested in, please email your instructor for approval. Provide a link that provides a synopsis of the movie to show it falls within our course content.
