    SHOW SYNOPSIS
    A dedicated Union nurse and a mysterious Confederate refugee meet on the Shiloh battlefield to compete for the title of Best Female Reenactor of the Year. With their young trainees trying to outdo each other in “authenticity,” and a concessionaire working both sides to her best advantage, their competition leads them into real conflict with Ranger Wilson, an African-American park ranger who would rather be anywhere than the year 1862, imaginary or not. As the re-enactment rages out of control, all six women discover that some Civil War conflicts have lasted well beyond the surrender at Appomattox…

    CHARACTERS
    6 women, ages 20 and up. One must be African-American.

    Meg Barton, female, 20s

    Confederate refugee re-enactor. Quiet and dignified, she is fiercely proud and protective of her Southern heritage.

    LucyGale Scruggs, female, 20s
