The Oklahoma Historical Society (OHS) and the Friends of Honey Springs Battlefield film The Battle of Honey Springs (2021) is scheduled to air on OETA, Oklahoma’s statewide PBS station, on Thursday, November 2, at 7:30 p.m. It will air again on Saturday, November 4, at 8:30 p.m. on the OETA WORLD Channel.

The film documents the largest Civil War battle that took place on July 17, 1863, in present-day Oklahoma, then Indian Territory. Near the community of Honey Springs in the Muscogee Nation, Union and Confederate forces battled for control of Indian Territory. Brother fought against brother as members of the Muscogee and Cherokee Nations fought on both sides. Previously enslaved members of the First Kansas Colored Volunteer Infantry Regiment fought against their former enslavers and proved themselves to their commanders as they held the center of the line. Ten different American Indian tribes fought in the battle, including members of the Muscogee, Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Seminole, Delaware, Kickapoo, Osage, Quapaw, and Seneca tribes.

The Battle of Honey Springs is a Pantheon Digital Production written and directed by Bryan Beasley and produced by Jaime Roman and Jon Roman. The film stars Sidney Flack, Aaron Martin, David Burkhart, T.S. Akers, Roderick Berko, Tyler Huffman, Warren Gavitt, Jeremy Guana, and Elisha Pratt.
