‘Love and Valor’ film to be shown at Iowa Wesleyan
MOUNT PLEASANT — Through special arrangement with the director, Charles Larimer, Friends of the Harlan-Lincoln House will present the final edit version of his film “Love and Valor: One Couple’s Intimate Civil War Letters” at 7:30 p.m. May 17 at the Iowa Wesleyan College Chapel.
Three years ago, Larimer shared an earlier version of the movie with a local audience. Larimer is again offering the showing as a fundraiser for the Harlan-Lincoln House.
Tickets may be purchased at the door for $5. A reception will be held after the film in the chapel lobby.
The film is based on Larimer’s book of the same name. Jacob and Emeline Ritner, the couple who wrote the letters, were Larimer’s great-grandparents. The Ritners lived in Henry County, and Ritner served as captain in the 25th Iowa Infantry.
