President Lincoln has just been reelected, and General Sherman is marching troops into battle. Interweaving historical figures with fictional characters, A Civil War Christmas not only entertains but inspires the audience by portraying the real-life struggles that occured and the human spirit that endured during one of the most difficult times in our history. Christmas carols and folk songs are sung throughout by the ensemble, with additional period music performed by a group of instrumentalists.
