Will Rogers & American Politics
Sandra Day O'Connor made history on July 7, 1981, by becoming the first woman nominated to the Supreme Court. Learn more about American politics through the eyes of O'Connor and other great Americans who explore the life and political persuasions of Oklahoma's favorite son, Will Rogers (Cherokee).

Will's words and musings influence the American political landscape through some of our nation's most difficult times in the 1920s and 1930s and still have a powerful effect on our political system today, but through it all, he remained a simple Oklahoma cowboy with belief in hard work, common sense, and a deep connection with the American people.

Chart Rogers' impact on American politics through rare archival film footage, photos and documents, and interviews with actor Mickey Rooney, Cherokee Chief Chad Smith, comedian Lewis Black, former Oklahoma Gov. George Nigh, Rogers' grandniece and scholars. Bill Kurtis, former CBS news anchor and host of A&E's American Justice and Cold Case Files, narrates.

The Road to Andersonville
Available Fall 2015


The first film to document the story of Michigan's Native Americans in the Civil War who served in Company K of the 1st Michigan Sharpshooters. 

 

During the Civil War, a regiment of sharpshooters was being recruited to fight for the Union, but there was a problem--few men could pass the marksmanship test. Since Michigan's Native Americans were famous as skilled hunters, it was decided to recruit one company--Company K--from among the tribes in Michigan. Nearly 140 men volunteered for Company K in the 1st Michigan Sharpshooters regiment. Company K was sent to Virginia in 1864 and fought in some of the fiercest battles of the Civil War-- The Wilderness, Spotsylvania, and the Siege of Petersburg.
