History Channel Series Will Air 10 Historical Documentaries

By Indiewire | Indiewire April 7, 2006 at 8:24AM

Beginning this Sunday, April 9, the History Channel will launch a week of special programming with 10 documentaries that will air as part of the series "10 Days That Unexpectedly Changed America." Each of the 10 films that will air is the work of award-winning documentary filmmakers, who were selected to tell the story of a specific event that had an impact on America's political, cultural or social landscape. Filmmakers used archival footage and artifacts to recreate these historical incidents that are played out through crafted scenes and interviews. The selection of documentaries also provides a balanced look at some of the more well-known pivotal events in history, such as Shay's Rebellion in 1787 or the assassination of President McKinley in 1901, while shining light on other less-cited events like the Pequot War between the Native Americans and English in 1637. James Moll's "Massacre at Mystic," which tells the story of the Pequot War, will air on The History Channel this Sunday night, along with Michael Epstein's "Antietam," which focuses on one of the bloodiest battles of the Civil War during the time that President Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation. For more information about the documentaries and the series schedule, please visit the History Channel's festival website. [Tamara Schweitzer]
