Narrated by Oscar-nominated screenwriter John Milius (Apocalypse Now), Jewish Soldiers in Blue and Gray explores the sacrifices Jews made as they defended both the Union and the Confederacy. The film was released in 2011 and is 86 minutes long.
In support of our production of The Whipping Man, the Oregon Jewish Museum will be screening this film on Thursday, March 14 at noon and 7 p.m. Professor Reiko Hillyer of Lewis & Clark College will introduce the film and lead a Q&A session following the screening. Tickets are $10 for the general public, $8 for Oregon Jewish Museum members and $5 for students.
