July 18, 2016 Jerry Kane

LINCOLN – Enjoy a movie under the stars at Fort Hartsuff State Historical Park on July 22 with the screening of “The Trial of Standing Bear.”

The movie, which begins at 9:30 p.m., tells the story of Ponca chief Standing Bear’s 1879 trial, in which he successfully argued that a Native American was a “person” under the law. A large portion of this 1988 television movie was filmed on location at Fort Hartsuff.

The movie will be screened outdoors, between the post headquarters and the barracks. Movie-goers may enjoy s’mores and fresh theater popcorn, and are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or blankets. Visitors also may bring a tent and spend the night under the stars.

While the movie is free, a park permit is required of each vehicle entering the park. Fort Hartsuff is located 3 miles north of Elyria in Valley County.
