This newsletter looked at the anniversary of two different events,
the invasion of Normandy beaches, known as D-Day and the
passage of the Civil Rights Act. The events are separated by place and time and seemingly subject matter, but in reality, both dealt with freedom. Included is an excerpt from General Eisenhower's letter to the troops. Students are encouraged to investigate the lives of Medgar Evers, James Chaney, Andrew Goodman and Michael Schwerner who died in the Civil Rights movement. Unfortunately the envelope links are no longer live, but the information can be used for lessons or bulletin board materials to hook students on the daily lesson.
