3. The Southeast (cc)

03. The Southeast (cc)

This program looks at crafts historically linked to America's Southeast region. Cinnamon Log Cabin - Nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains are many log homes. As towns were settled it was difficult to bring building materials into the mountains, so often the local trees were used to create log cabins; but none smell as sweet as our cinnamon house. Palmetto Bug - Tribute to one of many bugs that flourish in warm, humid climates. Cardinal and Dogwood Sachet - Both Virginia and North Carolina share the same state bird and flower: the cardinal and the dogwood. In fact cardinals are the most popular state bird all across the United States, found in 7 different states. Kitty Hawk - On December 17, 1903, the Wright brothers made the world's first powered airplane flight in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. Tramp Art - An American folk art consisting of chip carving on cigar boxes and fruit crates. Soldiers of the Civil War passed around the carving technique. It is generally incorrect that tramps and hobos did this work as payment for rooms and meals, but that is where the name came from. 06/09DE/CC Closed-Captioned PIA 30 min.
