We were very pleased with the 2 actor preformance. The actor interacted with the audience. There was humor and serious dialog. The information was well researched and we had "aha" moments.

Enjoyed this historic telling of U.S. history with a focus on Civil War era. It was presented in a way that held your interest. With some humor. When you see that it is a two person play don't let that keep you from going.
