Ford’s Theatre is proud to present The Civil War, a musical tribute that puts a human face on an American tragedy. A landscape of the people, voices and sentiments of the American Civil War, this song-cycle is inspired by the words of Walt Whitman, Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln as well as the lives (as documented through letters, photographs, and journals) of ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances.
Drawing from the American musical genres of rock, country, gospel, folk, and rhythm and blues, The Civil War combines the stories of Union and Confederate soldiers, slaves, abolitionists and veterans. The production is staged in a concert-like setting with a live seven-piece band and vocalists who sing of freedom and patriotism.</p>
