Tales at the Holidays: Letters from the Civil War

Tales at the Holidays: Letters from the Civil War

Utilizing song, stories, dancing and puppetry, this new holiday show tells the intriguing story of brave mail couriers during the Civil War.

During the Civil War, soldiers on both sides yearned for letters from home, especially during the holidays.

A soldier wrote in 1861 that getting a letter from home was more important to him than "getting a gold watch.” Many regiments sent out an average of 600 letters per day. The mail couriers became a courageous band of messengers heralding news to and from the battlefields.

Utilizing song, stories, dancing and puppetry, “Tales at the Holidays: Letters from the Civil War” will amuse and regale all ages.
