Scott County Library System to show locally made Civil War documentary
The Scott County Library in Eldridge will kick off our National Library week celebration with a special showing of the documentary The Rock Island Civil War Prison: Andersonville of the North on Sunday April 14th at 1 p.m. The film will be followed by a talk given by film researcher and art director, Dr. Ezra Sidran.
The 30-minute documentary tells the story of the prison using dramatic photos and other high-definition images. It documents the life of prisoners using their own words from diaries and letters. The documentary was produced by Heritage Documentaries, Inc. a Quad City based nonprofit organization that creates movies and books telling the stories of people, places, and events. To see a trailer of the film or to purchase a copy, visit http://www.heritagedocumentaries.org.
