Announcing…. Summer Essay Contest

Enter Generation Impact’s Essay Contest to win Light A Candle Films’ The Battle of Bunker Hill DVD!

“If we forget what we did, we won’t know who we are,” Ronald Reagan stated in his 1989 Farewell Address. “I’m warning of an eradication of the American memory that could result ultimately in the erosion of the American spirit.”

Filmmaker Tony Malanowski of Light A Candle Films strives to keep this American spirit intact. The Battle of Bunker Hill, a 60-minute docu-drama, weaves together historical commentary and action-packed reenactment to bring you the inspiring story of a small militia whose stand against the British became the first major military engagement of the Revolutionary War. This film seeks to tell America’s story from a positive, faith-based perspective.
