Passing the Torch
Stourwater Pictures was extremely pleased to produce a documentary film on the history of Fort Lewis, near Tacoma, Washington. The compelling story of this military post’s development from 1916 to 1939 provides insights on the Army’s tumultuous journey from an organization dependent on horses and mules to a modern mechanized force prepared to take on the enormous challenges of World War II. The film was part of an effort to protect and mitigate the loss of historical resources in the Fort Lewis Garrison Historic District by increasing awareness and appreciation of historical and cultural resources through research, education, and interpretation; and improving public access to information via a website and our engaging documentary film.
(Running time – 20 minutes)
