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.

The Civil War was a defining moment in American History - the fire of war burned away the scourge of slavery and, in time, melded the separate states into a true nation. In telling the tale of this large and complex event, these Theatreworks USA performances focus 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.

This stirring production features traditional songs of the era while sensitively illustrating this complex, tumultuous chapter of American history. The Civil War illuminates the humanity and sacrifices of those who fought, and the many that died.
