Join us on Thursday, February 21, 2019, at 6:30 p.m. for a screening of The Soldiers’ Plot. This 90-minute documentary tells the story of the Civil War Soldiers’ burial plot in Clinton, Illinois. Using cinematic techniques and many rarely-seen images, the production weaves a gripping tale of the hardships, perils, and life-altering events endured by the DeWitt County soldiers who left home to fight in the war—experiences much like those of McLean County soldiers. The film reconstructs the history of the sacred ground the people of DeWitt County set apart for their beloved war dead. Stick around for a Q&A with film producer Tony Long and DeWitt County historian Joey Woolridge immediately following the film.
