"Sherman's March," a two-hour documentary that was filmed in part in Washington County, will air Sunday at 9 p.m. on the History Channel, according to a Hagerstown-Washington County Convention and Visitors Bureau press release.

Washington County-based Historical Entertainment provided production assistance during filming, including providing Civil War re-enactors, location scouting and props, according to the release.

Filming in Washington County took place in Boonsboro, at the Miller House in downtown Hagerstown and at the home of Pat and Taylor Lemkuhl, according to Russ Richards, CEO of Historical Entertainment.

Much of the local filming took place in the fall of 2006, according to the release.

The documentary chronicles Gen. William Tecumseh Sherman's "March to the Sea" through Georgia and the Carolinas.

Tom Riford, CVB president and CEO, said four movies and more than 10 network television episodes have been filmed in Washington County during the past three years, according to the release.
