Shades of Blue and Gray: Ghosts of the Civil War
As a nation, we continue to be haunted by the Civil War. Presented by the Largely Literary Theater Company co-founders Sara Showman (from the South) and Mark Dawidziak (from the North), this hour show blends both actual and literary ghost stories from Ohio and other states, including South Carolina, Virginia and Tennessee. Literary selections include poetry by Walt Whitman and a ghostly tale by Ohio native (and Civil War veteran) Ambrose Bierce. The show also features a special selection about Abraham Lincoln.
