THE CIVIL WAR History,
Performing Arts- Theater
Over one hundred and fifty years ago, the United States of America split in half as the north and south waged war against each other over preserving a way of life versus preserving the union. While decisions made by Abraham Lincoln, Robert E. Lee, and General Sherman affected the course of American history, ordinary Americans carried out these orders, and often made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. In telling the tale of this large and complex event, this Theatreworks show focuses on the smaller stories of some of the soldiers who are caught up in it, including, Zak, a runaway slave who demands the right to fight his own fight; Will, his former best friend and "master;" Johnny, an Irish immigrant who volunteers to defend his new home; and Jackie, a girl who becomes a drummer boy.
