“Reflected Glory: Letters to Anna” Dinner Theater (POSTPONED-DATE TBD)

Event Description

Join us for an exciting dinner theater event to explore the love story of Anna Jackson and Thomas Jonathan "Stonewall" Jackson. Over a catered dinner, Kelly Hinson, will perform as Anna Jackson in a one-woman play, “Reflected Glory: Letters to Anna.” The story is taken from Jackson’s factual accounts and will be performed in full mourning attire. Guests will learn how the couple met and married, their tragedies, and the heartache for Anna after Jackson’s death.

Following dinner and the play, visitors will have the opportunity to learn about medicine, disease and amputations during the Civil War, nineteenth century mourning practices, and the 18th NC- the unit responsible for accidentally shooting General Jackson.

This is an evening ticketed event. Pre-registration is required. Tickets are $15 per adult, $10 for children & Gunboat Association members. Doors will open at 5:30pm, to allow visitors time to tour the museum prior to dinner at 6:00pm. The program will begin at 6:15pm.
