A Play in One Act
Commissioned by the Louisiana Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Commission
Playing Time: Approximately 20 minutes

First performed at The Louisiana State Archives in Baton Rouge in 2009 and at the Louisiana Old State Capitol Building with Secretary of State Jay Dardenne in the role of Lincoln, this historically based piece explores what “may” have transpired had President Lincoln met with Colonel Robert E. Lee to ask him to lead the Union Army. Historians say that President Lincoln had wanted Lee to be his general, but was turned down shortly before Virginia entered the Civil War. Lee and Lincoln had only communicated via third-party correspondence but that doesn’t stop us from speculating on what may have been said. This short play is perfect for cultural events, oral interpretation and for history classes and buffs. In any case, it is sure to facilitate an interesting discussion as to what did happen and what might have happened had Lee not resigned from service to his president. $10 Single Use Copyright Fee plus $20 Royalty per Performance for Amateur Theatre.
