Experiencing Interruptions?

Civil War Day

This production utilizes a full day of video experience from the April 27, 2019, Cowtown Civil War Day. The shoot is edited into a sixteen-minute documentary about the cause and effect of the American Civil war – applying a wide range of events into a single message. “A nation divided in social beliefs is subject to multitudes of lives left on the battlefield.” The message gained from the production supports the historical outcomes behind a nation divided from constitutional beliefs, which had an everlasting impact on the fate of one nation. A republic must understand its differences as a nation and rely on its constitution to prevent the repeat of such an “American Tragedy.”
