Sand Creek Massacre National Historic Site (NHS) partnered with the Crow-Luther Cultural Events Center to offer a free showing of the documentary film The Sand Creek Massacre and the Civil War on Saturday, June 27, at 5:30pm.
Winner of the prestigious National Association of Government Communicators (NAGC) Gold Screen Award, this documentary by the Denver-based Post Modern Company details why the Sand Creek Massacre and the Civil War are inexorably linked.
"Area residents played a very important role in establishing the Sand Creek Massacre NHS and continue to support the park and its mission," said Superintendent Alexa Roberts, "We want to recognize the community's support by offering a free screening of this documentary." The board of the Crow-Luther Cultural Events Center agreed to show the documentary free of charge on Saturday, June 27, at the Crow-Luther Cultural Events Center. The Sand Creek Massacre and the Civil War is the first of several different film documentaries produced in recognition of the 150th Year Commemoration of the Sand Creek Massacre. Other showings may follow, each scheduled on the last Saturday of the month.
The Crow-Luther Cultural Events Center is located at 1304 Maine Street, Eads, CO. For more information about the free showing of The Sand Creek Massacre and the Civil War visit the Plains Theater website
