The play follows four men as they march into the field for what will become the bloodiest three days in American history. Robert E. Lee leads the Confederate troops on an invasion of Pennsylvania, believing it is the only way the South can still force Washington to accept peace, and a Southern victory. By his side, James "Pete" Longstreet does not share Lee's optimism, and understands that this great fight could be the South's Waterloo.
On the Northern side, Cavalry General John Buford is determined to hold Lee's army back to save the critical high ground while he waits for the rest of the Union troops to arrive. Leading a Union regiment at the far end of the line, is Colonel Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain. His men are dug in, waiting for the inevitable assault from Longstreet's troops, the former college professor realizes that this is his destiny, commanding soldiers on a hill known as Little Round Top.
This original dramatic staging captures the heroism and fatal mistakes that turn the course of the war. Enjoyable for both the Civil War enthusist and those unfamiliar with it's history.
