Prof. Nick Childs - 'History of Brass Bands - The Golden Period'
The repertoire played by bands has altered radically over many years. However, commissioning bodies have always been governed by a desire to attract the leading mainstream composers of the day to write original material for the medium.

The Attack on Fort Sumter - Civil War
The battle is explained in this slide show video and how the South stole the very weapons that were used to attack the Fort. Lincoln's decision explained and a great quote is used that foreshadows his ultimate fate as a president. The video does not have an ending to the battle so they may need to have it explained. Using Google Earth to help show the Fort would be a good idea, too.

Burning it introduces large amounts of gases into the atmosphere that harm the environment in a variety of ways. In this unit it will become apparent that the most appealing quality of coal is that there is plenty of it.
