Through dramatic reenactments and interviews with eminent authors and historians we learn how an unusual group of men and women carefully planned and organized this frontier society to be the model for our nation’s growth.
“Opening the Door West” was produced by Shelburne Films in association with WOUB-TV (PBS) to tell this crucial episode of American history. This is the first time in over 150 years that the story of Ohio’s unique first settlement has been told for a popular audience.
Covering the period from 1785 to 1795, the story is told, with careful attention to historical detail, through the eyes of Revolutionary War officers and soldiers, settlers from New England, Native Americans, European immigrants and African Americans.
