To commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, the 4th Annual Lowell Film Festival will showcase classic films set during the War, historical documentaries focusing on the era, and contemporary independent films that explore themes traceable to the Civil War and its societal impact. The City of Lowell itself is a key part of this year’s homage to the Civil War as it was home to Addison Whitney and Luther Ladd, two soldiers in the Massachusetts 6th Regiment who were among the first four casualties in 1861.
