Dearborn— A documentary about Michigan’s key role in the War of 1812 is set to premiere next month at The Henry Ford history attraction.
“Michigan at War: The Struggle for the Old Northwest, 1812-1815” debuts Aug. 18 at Henry Ford Museum’s Anderson Theater in Dearborn. The 30-minute documentary was created by The Michigan Commission on the Commemoration of the Bicentennial of the War of 1812, with director and producer Chris Cook.
Commission chairman Phil Porter says the documentary helps explain the state’s role in what’s been called “America’s second war of independence.”
The event is free and open to the public with registration.
The documentary also is expected to be broadcast this fall on Detroit public television station WTVS.
