Time Capsule to include The Battle of Island Mound DVD

A DVD of The Battle of Island Mound film and bonus material was included among some 30 items sealed in a time capsule at the Missouri State Capitol building on July 3, 2015. The capsule was dedicated at a ceremony presided over by Governor Jay Nixon, marking the 100th anniversary of the capitol building, and will be opened on the 200th anniversary in 2115. A capsule sealed in the cornerstone in 1915 was opened prior to the rededication. A private citizen of Jefferson City suggested the DVD, and it made the final cut among other suggestions. Whether the DVD media will survive the passage of 100 years is a good question. But hopefully the disc's presence will motivate preservationists to locate a surviving copy in digital form somewhere if the disc itself will no longer play!
