"Civil War Voices" A Great Show-- Part 1

Hard to believe that these aren't professionals, but the cast at "Civil War Voices" put on a stunning show last night at Wayne Community College in Goldsboro, NC. The show lasted a little over two hours and gave a very balanced look at the war from Southern, Northern and Black viewpoints.

Relying on letters and books written by actual people, some famous and some not so, and adding era songs, it was quite the undertaking,

I had never heard of the people representing the Confederacy: Theo and Harriet Perry of Texas (mistakenly listed as Percy after I did some research) and Joseph Henry Harris of Alabama.

I did see, sadly, that the Confederate battle flag, or even one of the national flags, was not used, to be politically correct and not offend certain groups. The Bonnie Blue Flag stood in for it, however and "The Bonnie Blue Flag" sung along with "Dixie."

Well Worth the $5 to See It.  --Old Secesh
