Films at the Indiana Historical Society

Here's a good reason not to eat lunch at your desk: The Indiana Historical Society is presenting a free film series this month on the history of the railroad. Here's the schedule (all from noon to 1 p.m. at the Indiana History Center):
  • May 15: "Glory Days of Steam," which focuses on travel during the steam engine years.
  • May 22: "She’s a Hoosier Line: A Retrospective on the Monon."
  • May 29: "One Man's Trolley," a look at electric railroading through the years.

Railroad history not your cup of tea? In June, the film series focuses on historical disasters, such as tornadoes, floods and flu epidemics; in July, the focus shifts to military history.
