    In the image was a teenage boy, a Union soldier, in a brass-buttoned uniform with a musket by his side. His cap didn’t fit quite right. He stared straight ahead. He looked, Harris said, “so young, so innocent. Scared.” His name was Alex Sawhill, and he was the brother of Harris’s great-grandmother. He was killed by a stray bullet in battle when he was 18.

    Notes on Civil War Voices
    By Tony-nominated composer Paul Gordon
    “An utterly fascinating and well-conceived piece of musical theater.  While competing with other plays and musicals with similar themes, CIVIL WAR VOICES, manages to find its own voice and tells it’s story in a unique, uncluttered manner than moves, educates and entertains its audience.  The use of traditional Civil War period songs, ballads and hymns, bring a satisfying emotional connection to the work.  As a rule, the songs of most musicals will normally push the story forward, either in plot or emotional revelations of the character singing.  In CIVIL WAR VOICES, the songs serve as more of a celebration or a distant voices commenting on the emotional complexity of the time with simple folk hymns that are intended to bring atmospheric resonance to the moment…
    All in all, a wonderful and important piece of musical theater.  Bravo.”
