Passport Special | 56m 50s

Actor Richard Dreyfuss is best known for his roles in films such as 'Jaws,' and 'Mr. Holland's Opus,' but recently he founded the Dreyfuss Initiative, a non-profit formed to 'revive, elevate, and enhance the teaching of civics in America.' Receiving the Empire State Archives and History Award, Dreyfuss was interviewed by Harold Holzer, author of many books on Abraham Lincoln and the Civil War era.
