Of the Student, By the Student, For the Student is a program created, developed and sponsored by
Based on their hands-on experiences in Harpers Ferry National Historical Park and analysis of primary source documents, approximately 70 Harpers Ferry Middle School students served as writers, editors, photographers, choreographers, set designers, videographers, and even public relations representatives to produce and promote six mini-documentaries, depicting their understanding of the famous John Brown Raid in Harpers Ferry, which set-off fighting in the American Civil War.
These vignettes or Vodcasts are now part of the park’s official interpretation and available for you to view, download, and enjoy while in the park or at home.
