A HOUSE DIVIDED – A CIVIL WAR PLAY IN FOUR ACTS


This period drama in four acts is set around the time of the American Civil War. It looks at the lives of ordinary Americans, as well as that of the President and his wife. It examines how the war affected everyone, from the common soldier, the President and his family, to the Sioux Indians and Negroes now fighting in the war that was meant to free them.  And although many people were crying out for an end to the war, it continued to its inevitable conclusion. For once events were set in motion, it became as impossible to stop, as it was possible to justify.
