Description:
Experience Tennessee and American history through the eyes of Captain Tod Carter and his family, whose home still stands next to the site of the Civil War battle. Local historians contributed to the development of the script by A.S. Peterson, which is not a battle re-enactment, but emphasizes the relationships of the people involved. This play with music offers balanced views of the struggles between father and son, master and slave, and North and South. Video projections above the simple, rough-hewn set enhance the story. The innovative, artistic telling explores the universal nature of inner conflicts and humanity's ongoing quest for reconciliation.

(Contains mature themes.)
