SOLD OUT // Film Premiere: “Buchanan’s America: A Nation Divided”

SOLD OUT as of 4/29/2019

Join LancasterHistory for the exciting premiere of the new orientation film Buchanan’s America: A Nation Divided, filmed by Aurora Films. Despite having been one of America’s most accomplished politicians prior to taking office, James Buchanan’s presidency, marked by the struggles of an increasingly divided nation on the brink of Civil War, is ultimately considered a failure. In this film, seven historians come together to reinterpret aspects of Buchanan’s life—his relationships, his presidency, his critical failure to face the issue of slavery, and his political legacy. Their commentary, along with documents, artifacts, and dramatic reenactments, reveal Buchanan’s America.

On Tuesday, May 7 at 6:30pm, the public is invited to attend the film premiere of Buchanan’s America: A Nation Divided in Ryder Hall at LancasterHistory. The film will be followed by a panel discussion featuring Patrick Clarke, Michael Birkner, Ph.D., Leroy Hopkins, Ph.D., Louise Stevenson, Ph.D., and filmmaker and director Brad Kenyon of Aurora Films who will discuss Buchanan and the process of making the film, and take audience questions. Light refreshments will be served.

The premiere is free and open to the public, but requires advance registration to guarantee a seat. To reserve your seat at the premier, please click the “Get Ticket” link below or contact (717) 392-4633.
