Screen on the Green: John Brown's Holy War
A Special Program offered at Harpers Ferry National Historical Park

On the evening of Saturday, October 17, 2015 Harpers Ferry National Historical Park will host a screening of the Emmy® Award Winning PBS film, John Brown’s Holy War. This outdoor event will begin at 7:00pm on The Green in Lower Town.

Dennis E. Frye, Chief Historian at Harpers Ferry National Historical Park, will offer a introduction and some perspective on the program. Dennis served as the principal historical consultant on the film and appears as a guest commentator.

The event is free and open to the public. Parking will be available at the Visitor Center parking lot with shuttle bus transportation provided until 9:00pm. Additional parking can be found in the train station parking lot on Potomac Street. Please bring your own chairs and blankets.

In anticipation of the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service, Harpers Ferry National Historical Park is planning a number of events for the upcoming year. This event is a part of the National Park Service’s Find Your Park initiative in which the National Parks are inviting visitors to find their own connection to a park. By inviting visitors into the park after the museums have closed, Harpers Ferry NHP hopes that the visitors who attend this event will find a new connection to the town and its history.
