Generations of Heroes

Grades 7-12

Generations of Heroes started as a project that offered South Carolina educators and students a chance to document the living memories of heroes and civilians who have served the United States from World War II to today’s soldiers serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. ETV’s Knowitall.org and the S.C. National Guard teamed up with Perry McLeod, a history teacher at Richland Northeast High School in Columbia, S.C. to develop the project that featured the student-produced videos.
