Library to Screen GHS Student's Civil War Documentary

| 2 Comments

Greenwich High School student Grant Radulovacki's passion for the Civil War led him to create a documentary, Greenwich for the Union!, about the contributions of Greenwich soldiers to the Union's victory. The film will be screened on Saturday, September 25 at 2 p.m., in the Meeting Room.

Greenwich for the Union! (30 minutes) follows the most prominent Union regiment from Greenwich, the Tenth Connecticut Volunteers, from the eve of the Civil War to the surrender of General Robert E. Lee at Appomattox Court House. The documentary also highlights several notable Greenwich soldiers: Nicholas Fox, who was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor, as well as Captain Frank Munford Kelly and Charles Bing. The video includes a tribute to the Greenwich African American soldiers who joined the 29th and 31st Connecticut Volunteer Infantry Regiments.

 

Starting in the summer of 2009, Radulovacki constructed the film across more than 100 hundred hours of researching biographies, historical records of local citizens, newspapers and journals. To augment his research, he travelled to many of the battlefields where Greenwich soldiers fought, including Roanoke Island, Kinston, Antietam, Bermuda Hundred and Petersburg.

Radulovacki also authored two Wikipedia articles on Greenwich soldiers and the Tenth Connecticut Volunteers. His website, www.ctfortheunion.com, documents his ongoing research.

Bill - I actually have a DVD and book you could borrow to get a look. He was very impressive in his delivery and work.

I found the announcement of Greenwich soldiers in the Civil War a bit late to attend. My great grandfather, William L Savage, served with the 10th Connecticut. I have a collection of original artifacts that belonged to him. I wondered if there is a copy of Radulovacki's work that I might be able to view.
