addresses the life of Kit Carson. This assignment does not require you to watch the second half of the film, on the life of Buffalo Bill Cody.
I have put a DVD of this film in the reserve folder for HI 325C at the Reinsch Library circulation desk. Students can get the DVD for as much as two hours of viewing

time within the library (but cannot check the disc out of the library). You might also be able to find the film online (though it isnt available on Netflix).

government during the Mexican War and the U.S. Civil War? How does the film explain and assess Carsons military campaigns against Southwest Indians such as the
