Video: Kentucky Pioneers

If they don't make kids in school these days watch this stuff, something is wrong.

"This film shows representative aspects of the early pioneering movement into the kentucky territory. This is the life of our country in the 1780's picturing travel along the wilderness road, the role of the frontier forts, and the settler's establishment of new homes. Weaving, soap-making, cooking, candle molding, carpentry, cabin construction, schooling, and square dancing are among the activities of the time."

Encyclopedia Britannica Films, Inc., 1941.
