Description

from Buttonwillow Civil War Theater - "Grandaddy's Watch"
The year is 1864…. Witness the humorous and challenging encounter between a die-hard Tennessee Unionist and his spitfire, Confederate sister as they struggle to understand the other’s view of saving their precious Tennessee.

An entertaining and educational show with a light-hearted, but also serious portrayal of Civil War figures and facts. Stories from the time of America’s Civil War set the stage for a two-hour flash back into the heart and soul of America in the 19th century.

Filled with drama as well as side-splitting one-liners, you and your family will witness real American history, unfiltered by modern text books and political correctness. It wasn’t what the books told you…it was what they left out. This isn’t just a performance, this is a true Southern and American experience.
