Civil War Program Tonight At Liberty University


On Thursday, November 11, the National Civil War Chaplains Museum will present Far From Fields of Fire and Glory: Letters and Music of the Civil War, a special program blending dramatic readings of letters of soldiers with musical selections of the War. The presentation will take you back to the thoughts and dreams of the men of the Confederate and Union armies as they longed for a better time when death and destruction were far removed from them. Come and relive their hopes and sentiments in both writings and songs of that most turbulent time in our nation’s history.

The presenters will include Drs. Michael and Darlene Graves who will deliver dramatic readings of Civil War letters adapted from author Rod Gragg’s Far From Fields of Fire and Glory: Letters of the Civil War. Accompanying them will be Dr. Wayne Kompelien and the Liberty University Chamber Singers who will be presenting the musical counterparts to the letters. 
The program will be held in the new Tower Theater on the North Campus of Liberty University, just behind Thomas Road Baptist Church, and will begin at 7:00 PM on Thursday, November 11, 2010. The entrance to the theatre is located near the Tilley Center which is to the right of the La Haye Student Union opposite the La Haye Ice Center. Attendees may park in front of the La Haye Student Center.
