Untold Stories of the Civil War
Join us for a special evening of entertainment and a sneak-peek screening of
Civil War: The Untold Story, a visually stunning documentary series narrated by Elizabeth McGovern (Downton Abbey) and produced by Great Divide Pictures. Filmed with sweeping cinematic style on the very grounds where the epic battles were fought, it recreates authentic scenes and features interviews with top historians to provide new insights on the war and the relatively unknown roles that African Americans played in the conflict, from enslaved to emancipated to soldier. The program features performances by USI's gospel choir Designed by Grace, screenings of the Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial film Forging Greatness and trailer for Lincoln Amphitheatre's Abe Lincoln: A Pioneer Story, an introduction by the film's director Chris Wheeler, and panel exhibits by the Evansville African American museum.
The program is February 10, 2014, 7:00 PM, Forum 1 on the University of Southern Indiana campus in Evansville.
