Legacy Projects > “Along the Wabash” Documentary Project “Along the Wabash” Documentary Project

WTIU will produce a one-hour documentary about one of the longest rivers in the country, the Wabash River. It is significant in great part due to the historical events that occurred along its banks and shaped Indiana’s history, growth, and economy over time. Along this river, George Rogers Clark marched on the British; Tecumseh attempted to create a unified Indian nation; and two utopian societies were formed at New Harmony. The State of Indiana nearly went bankrupt over the building of the Wabash-Erie canal—a commercial venture intended to connect the Great Lakes to the Gulf of Mexico. Aside from major historical events, the documentary “Along the Wabash” will take a look at Indiana’s cultural history through the aspirations, industriousness, and dreams of everyday Hoosiers who worked and lived alongside the river.
