Cinema Six Schedule:
September 19, 2014
The Great Cable - Carry Union Hotel, Sackets Harbor, NY 6pm
This new local documentary was made possible in part by a grant from The Daisy Marquis Jones Foundation. June 1814 to June 2014 marks the celebration of the American Militia Men who carried a 600 foot long, five ton cable, from Ellisburg, NY all the way to Sackets Harbor, NY. The militia needed this cable to complete the battleship superior.
On September 19th, WPBS-DT will screen their newest local production The Great Cable Carry at 6pm at the Union Hotel (previously the Seaway Discovery Center) in Sackets Harbor, NY. Discover the crucial role that North Country residents played in defeating the British military during the War of 1812. Learn how they carried a five-ton cable from Ellisburg to Sackets Harbor, NY and why it was so important to the war effort. In June of 2014, modern North Country residents re-enacted the Great Cable Carry along the same twenty-mile route that their ancestors took two hundred years ago. This local production will air on Sunday, September 28th at 1pm. After the broadcast, stay tuned for special 1812 themed programming.
