This is what Bicycling Through Barbados is all about.
Not many people know that George Washington visited Barbados when he was 19 years old. That experince with the British Regiment gave him
enormous insight to the strategy and tactics he would encounter later as General of the Continental Army. Barbados is also a very
beautiful place to ride a bicycle. It is also expensive to get there and back, hence the reason for this production.
Our series of online videos will present American History by going in a logical, sequential order.
These segments show the sequence we suggest, however, viewers can obviously choose whatever they want.
More video clips are in the process of being uploaded. It takes time to build the site, so please be patient.
Columbus - featuring a ship like the one he sailed to the new world.
Somehow, we got off the trail of "normal" American history. We were drawn to true stories that are rarely told or described in text books. As with the entire series, we seek out modern day subject matter experts who combine vast personal knowledge with a spirit of adventure to relive history around us today.
Because video on the web has become so popular, and because we have had so many requests for it, we are now providing a few unusual segments. These pieces simply did not fit into the sequential order we try to present on the DVDs. We find them fascinating and perhaps you will, too.
There are many ways to display video clips on the web. We have chosen MP4 as the format to use. It makes small files with relatively good quality.
Our intent with online video is merely to provide a brief glimpse into the more complete coverage provided on the DVDs. We also want to show footage NOT included on the DVDs.
The MP4 format makes these clips easy to download for display on a laptop, an iPod, iPad, tablet, smartphone or similar device.
