New Civil War Documentary on Website

In conjunction with the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, Heritage Montgomery has produced a 60-minute documentary film on the history of the Civil War in Montgomery County. Entitled Life in a War Zone: Montgomery County during the Civil War, the video features historic and contemporary images of local heritage sites, Civil War re-enactors, and panoramas of unchanged rural landscapes.

The documentary was produced by Heritage Montgomery, written and directed by Barbara Grunbaum of G2 Media, and is enhanced by a soundtrack containing performances by the Washington Revels.

Life in a War Zone can be downloaded via iTunes from the Heritage Montgomery website -- The accompanying 32-page booklet, “A Guide to the Civil War in Montgomery County” is currently available under the “Sites” tab at the Civil War Sesquicentennial dropdown.

Paper copies may be requested by calling Heritage Montgomery at 301-515-0753 or emailing
