Then we also have a light dinner of fruits, vegies and sandwiches with drinks. After we were all gathered together we were treated to entertainment by Billy Horton who played banjo, guiter, fife and mandolin and violin, as well. He played and told stories of civil war days and how that was their only retreat after the day's fighting. On two days Apr 6-7, 150 years ago, 23,000 soldiers from both sides were killed on Shiloh Hill. He really had a good way to humanize these soldiers and that their whole real reason for them fighting was "Home" and their families. It was quite a nice evening and the ambiance of the old theatre was the perfect venue to take one back in time.
He told us that Alabama was the heart of Dixie. Love it!
The ladies room where we kill the yanks!
(a new inside joke, ya had to be there!)
