The Battle of Second Manassas

Journey Through Hallowed GroundAs part of its Of the Student, By the Student, For the Student® program, the Journey Through Hallowed Ground worked with sixth-grade students at the Stonewall Jackson Middle School in Manassas, Virginia to produce a series of videos related to the Battle of Second Manassas and the Civil War era.  This award-winning service learning program offers students a full immersion in American history and heritage. Students find themselves onsite at the Journey Through Hallowed Ground National Heritage Area, bringing the stories of those who came before them to life in videos that they write, produce, shoot, and edit under the guidance of JTHG professionals. The resulting mini-movies, or Vodcasts, offer a permanent record of the students’ personal experiences and interpretations.
