Did you know that this year marks the 150 year anniversary of
the Civil War & The Battle of Gettysburg?
We were all taught about the Civil War in school, but how much do
we really know about the challenging stories of the brave families
during the era? Mothers, fathers, and children all experienced
intense hardship as family members left to fight in combat. 150
years later the timeless stories of families affected by war still
remain especially pertinent.
Commemorate the 150 year anniversary & keep your kids
learning during the summer by catching Copperhead, a Civil War
movie the whole family can watch together and talk about!
From director Ron Maxwell, (Gettysburg, Gods and Generals)
Copperhead is unlike any other Civil War movie. Far from the
Virginia battlefield, it’s the exciting story of Abner Beech
(Billy Campbell), a peace-loving but stubborn dairy farmer in
upstate New York. He detests slavery, but opposes the war for the
sake of the “union.” Abner is neither a Yankee nor a Rebel. He is
a Copperhead. This is an extraordinary story of family and
community. Learn more: http://www.copperheadthemovie.com
