Where does the red brick road lead to?

User Avatar
It's a shortcut to Emerald City. Watch closely and you'll notice that the carriage Dorothy rides in follows the red brick road. The road leads right up to the front steps of Munchkin City Hall. it doesn't stop at the city hall though if you watch closely when the witch of the north leaves the red brick road leads out of Munchkin land its the opposite way of the yellow brick road..

Why is vimy ridge jusified as the Birth of a Nation?

User Avatar
The Vimy ridge is justified as the birth of the nation because when the battle of Vimy Ridge occurred the Canadians turned out to be way better than the Germans expected. The Canadians also got a lot of reputation and achievement during that battle. Lastly the Canadians defeated the Germans in the battle of Vimy Ridge. The Germans thought no one could take over the ridge because they could see everyone coming but the Canadians still defeated them. That is why Vimy Ridge is justified as the birth of a nation. It made the Canadians feel proud and they were finally being acknowledged.

At the time of it's release, "Birth of a Nation" (1915) was very popular. It's estimated budget was $110,000. It grossed $3,000,000 at the box office. It was the first film to be shown in the White House. Most white people in the South at that time probably thought it was a great film. The NAACP tried to have it banned, but failed. This film is credited with inspiring African-Americans to begin making their own films so as to show positive images of their people.
