"Civil War: The Untold Story" will premier on Friday, March 21, at the historic Savannah Theater in Savannah, Tennessee. Episode 2, which details the battle and aftermath of Shiloh, will be shown in its entirety. A panel discussion will follow featuring Eric Jacobson, Chief Operating Officer and Historian for the Battle of Franklin Trust, Dr. Timothy B. Smith, from the University of Tennessee at Martin, and chief ranger and author Stacy D. Allen. Director Chris Wheeler will also be on hand and provide a few words about the series.
The series breaks new ground by examining the Civil War through the lens of the Western Theater - including critical yet lesser known battles like Shiloh, Vicksburg, Chickamauga, and the Atlanta Campaign. Filmed with sweeping cinematic style on the very grounds where these epic battles were fought, it recreates authentic scenes and features interviews with top historians to provide new insights on the war.
Doors for this one-time event will be at 6:00 pm with the film beginning at 7:00 pm and is free and open to the public.
