Devin Frederick, a sophomore majoring in computer information technology and communications at Union College, films a reenactment of 1775 pioneers as they travel along the Boone Trace.

The Cumberland Gap welcomed 2.5 million people between 1775 and 1785. On Saturday, it welcomed three film crews. The Union College Fine, Performing and Communication Arts Department, in collaboration with the Knox Historical Museum, set out with three film crews and 14 reenactors from as far away as Berea to create scenarios one might have encountered along what is now known as Boone Trace.
