Early morning July 1, 1863. Gettysburg, Pa. As thousands of troops from both North and South amass for what will become one of the bloodiest battles of the Civil War, five teenagers from several local farms escape to the safety of the surrounding hills. There's the level-headed Eliza and her little sister, Justine, who's strong-willed; Georgina, whose mother has sheared her hair to make her look like a boy; and Rachel and Jeremiah, a brother and sister from a wealthier family. As they witness the horrors of battle over the next three days, the teens are forced to learn the responsibilities that come with growing up, especially as they deal with limited food, a murderous bushwhacker, and a young Confederate soldier they capture. Ultimately, the young people learn the value of life and freedom ... and the lessons of war. A dramatic and challenging play.
