A documentary film previewing the Sesquicenntenial Anniversary of America's Civil War.
8 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed "The Guns of April" last night. A 1:32 hour documentary by Ohio filmmaker Jim B. Behl. A nice mix of music, reenactments, and 150th anniversary celebrations at Charleston-Fort Sumter-Chambersburg & Gettysburg... He includes the 150th commemoration of the firing on Fort Sumter in Charleston Harbor. Film of the 147th commemoration of the burning of Chambersburg, leads into Gettysburg anniversary celebrations, where music, dramatic readings and reenactments combine to paint a picture of the coming sesquicentennial celebrations that will occur along the East Coast over the next four years. The film provides a good overview of what we can expect during the coming years as America commemorates the 150th anniversary of the Civil War.
