Civil War Days – Documentary Film
Chesapeake Public Library and student filmmaker Danny Terry team up to bring the educational documentary film based on the annual Civil War Days event in Chesapeake, Virginia, in September 2007. Annually, the educational event based on the Civil War era entertains hundreds of spectators through historical re-enactments, artillery demonstrations, living history demonstrations, guest speakers, period games, sutler tents, period music performances, participating vendors, and hands-on displayers. The film includes up-close-and-personal interviews with professional re-enactors Jim Getty, Tony Daniels and David Palmer, and Great Bridge High School history teacher, Thomas Sledge. Directed by Danny Terry.
