The Booth Art Museum in Cartersville, Georgia, which is associated with the Smithsonian Institute, invited the Buttonwillow Civil War drama to perform on the road at their monthly dinner theater. i have read several period journals including Mary Chestnut's diary, Sarah Morgan's diary, "Children of Pride" by Meyers and other first hand accounts of the Civil War, so I was hoping for historical accuracy. I was not disappointed. The first part of the drama started a bit slow for me as it took some time to establish the setting and storyline for what followed, which was a detailed history lesson in dramatic form. Once the real history lesson got underway peppered with the dry wit and great timing of the soldier's sister, it really moved quickly. I need to see it again to absorb the huge amount of information that they covered. The whole play only has the two characters -- a Union soldier and his Confederate sister. (In real life the actors are husband and wife.) I can't wait to see it again at the Buttonwillow Church location when we get the opportunity to visit Tennessee. This is definitely a taste of Southern culture. The accents are real.
