Presents

Love Letters of Lynchburg

By Bill Minor

A spoken word exchange of letters throughout the Civil War–script and original music by Bill Minor. these letters–exchanged by Charles Minor Blackford and his wife Susan from the time he rode off to First Manassas up through the Fall of Richmond (written under the most trying conditions borne with inspiring equilibrium)–may rank among the more insightful, full observant, and poignant love letters saved from that “dreadful war.” At its end, the couple returned to the home they had lost and spent the rest of their days (and nights) in fortunate union with one another.
