When Arkansas seceded from the Union on May 6, 1861, it was a divided state, politically and economically. During the war, it was the site of major military engagements such as the Battle of Pea Ridge, which effectively saved Missouri for the Union, and the Battle of Prairie Grove, the bloodiest conflict west of the Mississippi River. It was also one of the most difficult places for civilians to live, as both armies devoured or destroyed everything in their paths.

This course features War in the '60s, an hour-long documentary film that recounts the military history and the human story of what happened in Arkansas during the American civil war. Through interviews with historians, and the words of soldiers and Arkansas citizens who experienced the war, the documentary helps viewers understand what it was like to live in Arkansas during this tragic time in America's history, and how the war changed the state forever.

Photographed in locations across the state, War in the '60s is the last film produced by Jack Hill, one of the most prolific documentarians of Arkansas history, and the first full-length piece on Civil War Arkansas in more than 20 years. Jack Hill died in July 2012.

From 1910-1972, Arkansas State law mandated that victims of tuberculosis (TB) be isolated in a sanatorium located in Booneville, Arkansas. Some patients returned home, free of their symptoms. Others died there, either of the disease or of the gruesome operations prescribed by the doctors. This course features Sanatorium Hill, a documentary that tells the story of patients who survived the morbid treatments, recovered from the disease of TB, but were unable to forget the pain, suffering and despair.
