THE COLONEL HENRY RYERSON CIVIL WAR ROUND TABLE –
January 15, 2019 Meeting
Greetings and Welcome to our January Movie Night!
From: Jennifer CS Brylinski, Round Table President
Info about the January Meeting
Meeting Date: Tuesday, January 15, 2019.
Time: 7:30 P.M.
Place: Bristol Glen, 200 Bristol Glen Drive, Newton, New Jersey (973-300-5788), enter through Main
Entrance. The meeting is in the “Town Hall” room.
Movie: The Hunley, starring Armand Assante and Donald Sutherland, released in 1999, running time 94 minutes.
The fateful encounter of the Monitor and the Merrimack (also known as the Virginia), history’s first ever battle of
ironclad ships, was not the U.S. Civil War’s lone naval milestone. Desperate to break the stranglehold of the North’s
coastal blockade, the South built and sent into war the hand-powered submarine CSS Hunley.
Armand Assante (as Lt. Dixon, the sub’s skipper) and Donald Sutherland (as General Beauregard, the
Confederate commander at Charleston), star in this fact-based tale of the H. L. Hunley and its crew. The ship is
iron engineered from a large steam boiler. The crew consists of all volunteers, men destined to change the world
forever in the submersible ship that was the first combat vessel of its kind - and the hope of the Confederacy.
Directed by John Gray, music by Randy Edelman, this made for television Warner-Brothers/TNT production was
the winner of the Primetime Emmy Award in 2000, and was nominated for the Art Directors Guild’s Production
Design Award, the Cinema Audio Society’s C.A.S. Award, and the Motion Picture Sound Editor’s Golden Reel
