Apathy to Oblivion: Virginia’s Fight to Keep Historic Sites Relevant

Apathy to Oblivion: Virginia's Fight to Keep Historic Sites Relevant

This documentary will focus on the lesser known historic sites in the state of Virginia. Examples of these sites include Scotchtown, Long Branch, Berkeley Plantation and Belmead. The sites that will be explored are in dire straits, either financially or physically. The film is by no means, a travel log. The apathy toward American history by most young people who want immediate gratification and to vacation at Disney World, as well as the new demographic in 21st century America, have forced Virginia to think of new, out of the box ways to bring focus on these struggling sites in order to save them for future generations.
