'The Fries Rebellion' Docudrama Film Will Bring Lehigh Valley History to Life | WDIY Local News

The Fries Rebellion
Lower Macungie Township Historical Society

The Lower Macungie Township Historical Society is undertaking an ambitious project ahead of the America250 celebration which will be held nationwide in 2026. The Fries Rebellion Movie is a docudrama featuring historical events from the Fries Rebellion which took place in the Lehigh Valley and beyond between 1799 and 1800. WDIY’s Mike Flynn has more.

Mike Flynn is a local host for WDIY's Thursday broadcast of NPR's All Things Considered. He has been listening to public radio since he was student teaching in the early 1980s. Public radio and, in particular, NPR news helped him tremendously as a history teacher at Emmaus High School. Now retired, he wants to help the station that helped him. He feels honored to be able to share what he calls a treasure with his community.
