He is a career Army Officer, a West Point graduate and a confirmed Unionist. His sister, a die-hard Confederate, shows up in his camp and reveals she is secreting medicines to the Rebels. Their encounter is full of drama, laughs, and a few tender tears. Their conversation will amaze and amuse you.

Our family of 8 attended the dinner show at Button Willow Church Civil War Dinner Theater and had a fantastic time. The meal was superb and the show excellent. We can't wait to attend another show. We are still talking about the show and the food almost 2 years later.

I'd like to give this fewer stars, really. The show is a southern apologist's re-write of Civil War history, with a major theme of downplaying slavery as a major role in the south's secession. The entire play is about offering half a dozen other alternative explanations that make the Civil War the north's fault entirely. The gift shop is full of southern memorabilia, much of which is historically accurate. However, much of it is also modern renderings of the Confederate battle flag, appealing to the "heritage, not hate" crowd.
