Recently I was asked to participate in a local documentary produced by the Hunter Mill Defense League entitled, “Danger Between the Lines”.
It tells the story of one of the most active areas during the Civil War conflict (the Hunter Mill corridor).
The Hunter Mill corridor represented a gateway to southern Virginia, which was the capital of the confederacy and was connected by railway to the nation’s capital, Washington DC.
The documentary was produced to educate the public and particularly those in the school systems about valuable Civil War data, some of which is not commonly known.
Because of its proximity to Washington DC, the area became a hotbed of controversy and split loyalties which often came to a boiling point with aggressive and antagonistic behavior. The Civil war lasted 4 years and took 620,000 lives and eventually created the circumstance which took the life of our 16th president, Abraham Lincoln.
I am extremely proud to have been a part of this documentary and ask all my friends and colleagues who are interested to view it for yourself on Sunday September 6th at 3:00 PM EST on WETA – – or – – you can view it on Cox (726), Comcast (220), FIOS (526), Direct TV (26), and RCN (613).
