August 22, 2012

OWINGS MILLS, Md. — Maryland Public Television will broadcast the television premiere of “The Heart of the Civil War” on Tuesday, Sept. 11, at 8 p.m.

“The Heart of the Civil War,” an hourlong MPT documentary film, showcases the towns, battlefields and sites of the Civil War in Washington County and central Maryland.

During the war, Confederate and Union forces clashed for control of strategic points throughout three counties in west-central Maryland, as the war marched north to south from the Confederacy to the union, and back again.

“The Heart of the Civil War” recounts the war’s far-reaching impact on the lives of ordinary, but battle-weary Marylanders caught up in now-famous local battles, according to an emailed news release.
