Brothers at War
John and Richard Thomson are two brothers living in the Mid West at the time of the American Civil War who feel very strongly about the war, signing up for opposite sides in the civil war. They meet up again at Gettysburg, in one of the major battles of the war.
The show ends with the Gettysburg Address read by the whole cast before singing the final song “Freedom”.
