Indian Sign Language - Larry Pendleton (1) [VHS] EXC. COND --
Who were the first people to sign in America? It may have been the native American Indians. Early explorers that discovered America came across native Americans communicating easily and freely in sign language. Why did the native Americans develop a sign language? Indian Sign Language, also known as Plains Sign Language, was developed by Indian society to meet a need for clear communication between tribes that spoke different languages. It had nothing whatsoever to do with hearing loss. It was used only by Indians in the Plains. ~~~~~

|Revolution (1) [VHS] EXC. COND|
This period drama about the American Revolution has an overlay of rhetoric that thwarts the action, flattening out the story about a man and his loved ones caught up in the events of the time. Tom Dobb Al Pacino falls in love with Daisy McConnahay Nastassja Kinski, an aristocrat who deserts her class to fight alongside the rebels. Tom teaches his son Ned Dexter Fletcher everything he needs to learn, though the growing rebellion consumes most of his attention. Eventually, the Redcoats are mowed down in large battle scenes, as the ragtag Colonialists go to war. Paid $24.99 2006 for tape alone. $16.00 includes shipping in lower 48 states - USA.
|The Revolutionary War (2) [VHS] (1995) NEW |
An excellant effort to portay the events and circumstances surrounding this period of American History. This 3 volume set is on par and I believe equivalent to the PBS Series titled Liberty. This production appears more focused on the military strategies and ensuing battles. Indeed, most of the historians interviewed for the series contain a sound military knowledge. Paid $39.99.00 2012 for tapes alone. $28.00 includes shipping in lower 48 states - USA. (these are becoming hard to fine) New never opened.
|When the Forest Ran Red (1) [VHS] NEW|
The struggle between the British and French to control the land beyond the Appalachian Mountains triggered the French and Indian War in 1754. When the French built a chain of forts south from Lake Erie to what is now western Pennsylvania, a young George Washington served with British General Edward Braddock's army to repel them. This well-presented film carefully examines the horror that unfolded when the Anglo-American army was ambushed by the French and Indians south of Fort Duquesne. Paid $27.99 2012 for tape alone. $25.00 includes shipping in lower 48 states - USA. New never opened.
|CLA 2013 Auction, New Items|
The 2013 CLA Auction is available for viewing. Seven artists and their donations are currently profiled. New Items are frequently posted. The featured artist today is Brian Anderson of Bristol Vermont, gunsmith, artist, teacher, and blacksmith Brian offered to put his skills to work for our 2013 “CLA Fundraising Auction” by making us a copy of the “Squire Boone Pipe Axe”. While the Daniel and Squire Boone are seldom associated with the war of 1812 the little known story of Squire’s personal pipe ax is a good example of how frontier families passed on not only the tradition of fighting for freedom, but also the implements fot that fight. The Boone brothers, Daniel and Squire were both handy at the forge, so handy that they even made guns. Several artifacts still exist that are attributed to their hands, including a very special pipe axe that is currently curated by the Indiana Museum. The axe was originally forged by Squire, and later traded to his brother-in-law, Mr. Benjamin Van Cleve, for a cow. Then, during the War of 1812 Benjamin’s soldier son William carried and used the family heirloom all the way to the Battle of New Orleans. Brian Anderson copied Squire’s work by forge welding several pieces of wrought iron buggy tire into a bar or billet that was hammered out into the tomahawk head, accurately copying the Boone piece right down to the inserted steel bit. Next, following tradition, a small section of rifle barrel was fitted and brazed onto the head to serve as the pipe bowl. After that everything was patiently hand worked and filed into its final shape. Finally, just like Squire did on the original, Brian used an ash sapling for the axe’s haft.
