VIDEO –Civil War Documentaries

In 2011, Dickinson students and staff at the House Divided Project produced two documentary short films to help commemorate the upcoming 150th anniversary of the American Civil War.  “From Carlisle to Andersonville” by John Osborne and Don Sailer offered the poignant narrative of a young farm boy from Carlisle, Pennsylvania named John Taylor Cuddy who literally grew up during the war, becoming a more mature young man before he was captured with his unit and send to the notorious Andersonville prison camp in Georgia. “Do They Miss You At Home?” by David Gillespie offers an equally haunting account of the homefront in Carlisle, focusing on the story of the Colwell family and the tragedy that befell them during the conflict.
