SELECTED BY THE TRAVEL CHANNEL and FEATURED ON THE HISTORY CHANNEL! Located in the old Buttonwillow Church just outside of Chattanooga....The Buttonwillow Church Civil War Dinner Theater proudly presents "Granddaddy's Watch", a moving two-hour live performance recently featured on PBS and based on actual events. The War Between the States comes to life on a magnificent 19th-century set in the beautifully reproduced Victorian dining and performance hall. The story of a Union soldier meeting his Confederate sister on the battlefield is based on hundreds of diaries and memoirs from the period. Open year-round, this indoor, family-friendly production in Whitwell (just 35 miles west of Chattanooga) immerses the audiences in the 1860s, with fascinating tidbits of history, dining tables made from old church pews and authentic recipes from the cook book of Varina Davis, wife of Confederate President Jefferson Davis. This show traveled nationally for 15 years before opening here in 2006. This production is what you would see in Pigeon Forge or Branson. Located in the beautiful Sequatchie Valley. Come see the Fall colors. FROM FOOD PUSHERS TO TEAR CATCHERS.... COME BACK TO 1864! REAL SOUTHERN HISTORY! Reservations are required. School and group rates are available. CHRISTMAS SHOWS BEGIN THANKSGIVING WEEKEND. http://www.civilwardinnertheater.com
