Hornell Public Library

The play is based on a series of conversations between the famous Union generals during the Civil War. The friendship that developed between Ulysses S. Grant and William Tecumseh Sherman is a touching story on a personal level, but it also was a recipe for the success of Union arms. Beginning at Vicksburg in 1863, the play has a nice arch that allows audiences to see the evolution of the partnership between the generals.
