I watched the first 30 mins but had to leave. It was interesting. Discussed civil war SB and African American usage of SB (and the political aspects)
Its an author giving a speech on it. Her book sounds intriguing.

I missed it, if anyone knows where to view online, or if it will be aired again, please PeaMail me with details.
Thank you ever so much.
|Posted: 7/21/2013 4:31:43 PM|That sounds interesting - wish we got that channel here... I did a quick search and I did find a YouTube video by Dr. Ellen Garvey where she talks about Writing With Scissors... It's a lecture so probably not as 'pretty' visually as the C-SPAN show, although I only took a quick peek - I'm going to watch it later...

I watched about 15 minutes. Very boring. Interesting topic but the speaker was putting me to sleep

i watched it.. I kept falling asleep but it was interesting.
|Posted: 7/21/2013 6:31:27 PM|I did. And my DH walked in to the room and watched it too. He NEVER watches anything like that. The only documentary/educational stuff he watches is the history of skateboarding or snowboarding... Blah.
It was very historical (hence the title...) and really discussed how those in the 1800's and early 1900's kept scraps of paper and what types of stuff they used. I found out that they actually sold books specifically for scrapbooking. And Mark Twain made and patented self adhesive (self-pasting) book for scrapbooking. Cool.
The discussion of current scrapbooking came up during the Q&A period at the end. It was VERY dry, but once I put my school lecture head on, it was more bearable. I did learn some stuff and I guess that is what the point is. It is not a show that I would watch over and over, but I am glad that I invested that one hour of my life to it. I now feel like I am a much larger part of history.

I love history, so I enjoy the programming on C-SPAN's American History TV. The "First Ladies" series also said that one of Ida McKinley's hobbies was scrapbooking and they showed one of her books in the program. It was mostly newspaper clippings of her husband's political activities. Interesting that several famous people kept scrapbooks in the 1800s, including Abraham Lincoln, Mark Twain (as mentioned) and the actress Sarah Bernhardt.
Maribeth, CSPAN sometimes repeats the American History TV programs so there is a possibility it will air again next weekend.
