Album Notes and Credits
Personnel: Tim Forrest (recorder).
Liner Note Author: Howard Zinn.
Recording information: Taos Talking Film Festival (04/17/1999).
This recording is Zinn speaking at the Taos Talking Film Festival. Zinn brings his progressive, panoramic view of American history to bear in suggesting stories for films Hollywood should make, but probably never will. In the wake of Saving Private Ryan, most of Zinn's suggestions are of views of war from the participants we never hear from. For instance, Irish immigrant troops that deserted the American side and joined Mexico as San Patrick's battalion in the Mexican-American war and the disgruntled American Revolutionary War veterans that abandoned Washington's cause, and post-independence still felt so lighted as to take up arms against the new country. Internal strife is also suggested as in the Ludlow Massacre and Mother Jones' children's crusade of textile workers, heroic and stirring episodes for the genesis of the labor movement. Zinn brings many such tales to light in an entertaining and informative manner as one would expect from his fascinating books, like A People's History of the United States and You Can't be Neutral on a Moving Train. ~ Tom Schulte
