Trouble on the Border - Order No. 11

The conflicts of the American Civil War are often portrayed with huge battles of epic scale. Yet its most profound effect was on the lives of everyday families, struggling to survive. This marionette theater production offes a brief glimpse of the times through the eyes of the youth of a small working farm in western Missouri. Events unfold as Union General Order No. 11 is issued - an 1863 order that stirred destruction and fired flames of conflict that resonate today.
