Sharing the Story of Revolutionary War Battle That Took Place in Our Own Backyard

Narrative Media got to play a role in helping to publicize this amazing bit of Revolutionary War history discovered in our own backyard.

Rowan University called us with a last minute project to produce several videos highlighting recently uncovered Revolutionary War artifacts and the remains of 13 Hessian soldiers from the Battle of Red Bank in 1777, and we jumped at the chance to be a part of it.

Our team helped the University produce a 7 minute mini documentary video for the project website, a 30 second social media promotional video and a package of b-roll and interview clips for distribution to the media, and our team pulled it all together in the course of 5 days.

Additional information c/o Rowan University:

Unexpected victory in 1777, unexpected discovery in 2022: Some 245 years after they were buried in a mass grave, the human remains found at Red Bank Battlefield change what historians understood of battle’s aftermath October 1777 fight between American and Hessian forces. Rowan University history professor Jennifer Janofsky tells about the research, along with principal archaeologist Wade Catts.
