Subject: [TalkAntietam] Documentary preview in Hagerstown
The City of Hagerstown has recently produced a documentary for its cable
television station. It is entitled "Valor in the Streets: The Battle of
Hagerstown". This 30-minute video relates the story of the July 6, 1863 Battle
of Hagerstown, likely the largest urban cavalry battle of the war, which
occurred on the retreat from Gettysburg.
It is modeled on the old "Civil War Journal" that was on the history channel,
with elements of news reporting. Local resident and national television news
personality Kelly Wright is the narrator. The production is a mix of historic
photos, interviews with historians (Frye, Hartwig, Harmon, Miller and
Wittenberg), CGI maps, and live action footage, including some that was staged
to relate specific stories in the script.
The roll-out showing is scheduled for 7 pm on Wednesday, July 6 (the 148th
anniversary of the battle) at the Bridge of Life Center, 14 South Potomac Street
in Hagerstown. Tickets will be available later in the week at the visitor center
in downtown hagerstown. When I hear how you can order them by phone, I will
submit a follow up post with that information.
Tickets are $5 each.
This production was made possible through grants from the following
The Hagerstown Trust Division of the Columbia Bank
The Hagerstown - Washington County Convention and Visitors Bureau
The W.A. Hazel Construction Company
