AUGUSTA, Ky. (AP) - Two Northern Kentucky University graduate students are working on a film about a Civil War battle and counting on internet donations to complete the project.
The Ledger Independent reports that Steve Oldfield and Sean Thomas are using the philanthropic website Kickstarter to raise at least $10,000 for their documentary, "Hurrah for Kentucky: The Fierce, Forgotten Fight for Augusta."
Both men are pursuing a master's degree in public history from Northern Kentucky University. So far, they have created a DVD and walking tour of the battle site using QR Smartphone capabilities.
The Kickstarter project has a deadline of Feb. 11 for donations.
