Four Score and Seven Years Ago 10:00 am
Four Score and Seven Years Ago @ Findlay High School Auditorium
Feb 10 @ 10:00 am – 12:30 pm
To young Lemuel, who has escaped slavery in Georgia, life in Gettysburg is everything he had dreamed it would be. He has a good job at the general store and a good friend in the shop’s owner, Mrs McIlheny. His ideas about the North and the South, as well as what it means to be a free man, are challenged, however, when he unexpectedly befriends Mrs. McIlheny’s nephew, Jacob McLain, a private in the Confederate Army, who comes to the store after his regiment has temporarily taken control of Gettysburg. During the Battle of Gettysburg, Jacob is wounded and returns to his aunt’s general store to take refuge. When a suspicious Union sergeant returns to the store and sees Jacob, Lemuel must come to Jacob’s aid. The two men may be of different races and on different sides of the Civil War, but they have much to teach each other about bravery, loyalty, and how freedom can begin with a simple act of kindness of ArtsPower’s patriotic and inspiring Civil War Musical. Ideal for grades 4-8, each performance lasts approximately 1 hour.
