LIFE OF PEACE IN A TIME OF WAR, A “LIVING IN VIRGINIA” SPECIAL
Running Time: 60 minutes
The documentary examines the Conscientious Objector (CO) movement from the Civil War through World War II. The program follows former World War II COs to their Civilian Public Service (CPS) camps as they relate their patriotism, their non-violent stance and their pride in serving their country. The CPS, signed into existence by President Franklin Roosevelt, was an alternative means of service for those whose religious beliefs prevented them from fighting. It was what the peace churches—Mennonite, Brethren and Quaker—had been working for and hoping for, but it came after years of abuse.
