        An Iconic Character | Little Women

        Experience one of the most dramatic scenes in Little Women, the beloved American classic by Louisa May Alcott, in this video excerpt from Little Women | MASTERPIECE.  When the March girls receive word that their father, a Union army chaplain in the Civil War, is gravely ill, they pitch in to help their mother travel to Washington, DC to care for him. Jo decides to sacrifice her "one beauty" and sells her long hair to fund her mother's trip, revealing both her strength of character, her love of her family, as well as her impetuous and unconventional nature. This resource is part of the MASTERPIECE Collection.

        Find out more about Little Women and MASTERPIECE on the series website. The Little Women DVD is available at shopPBS.
