The Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park invites the public to a sneak-preview screening of Civil War: The Untold Story – Episode 4 “Death Knell of the Confederacy.” Producer/Director Chris Wheeler of Great Divide Pictures will be there to introduce the film and give insights to the production process. Afterwards, he and Park Historian Jim Ogden will conduct a question-and-answer session. Please note the theater can only accommodate 150 viewers. Episode 4 is part of a visually stunning new 5-part documentary series narrated by Elizabeth McGovern (Downton Abbey) and produced for public television by Great Divide Pictures. The series breaks new ground by examining the war through the lens of the Civil War’s Western Theater. Filmed with sweeping cinematic style on the very grounds where these epic battles were fought, it recreates authentic scenes and features interviews with prominent historians to provide new insights on the war and the relatively unknown roles that African Americans played in the conflict. This special screening will be held at the Chickamauga Battlefield Visitor Center Theater in Fort Oglethorpe, GA.
