 File — Box: WSC002, Folder: W0152.01

Scope and Contents

From the Collection: This collection contains a program, typed script, and list of cast members for the historical pageant To Arms in the Valley. The play, presented by the Tennessee Valley Historical Society and the Colbert-Lauderdale Civil War Centennial Commemoration Committee, both located in northern Alabama, commemorated the 100th anniversary of the Civil War, narrating Civil War events that occurred in Colbert County and Lauderdale County.

The commemorative pageant program contains historical sketches of Tuscumbia and Florence and the communities' earliest Civil War volunteer companies: the Franklin Blues and the Florence Guards. The program also includes a brief outline of pageant scenes, beginning with a series of antebellum scenes and ending with a scene that represented the reuniting of the Union and Confederacy. The twenty-three page script includes descriptions of the staged scenes and a transcript of the text read by the play's narrators.
