Description

In March of 2019, Buttonwillow Civil War Theater found its forever home on the Parkway in Pigeon Forge after 40+ years touring around the country.  Our show “Granddaddy’s Watch” whisks you back to 1864 where you will be introduced to an East TN Unionist soldier at his camp 300 miles from home getting surprised by his Confederate sympathizing family member. They banter back and forth sharing facts the opposing side has conveniently forgotten and debate on who is on the “right” side of the war.

During the 2 hour production you will hear about pieces of history that have long been forgotten and first hand stories straight from the National Archives that shed light on the TRUE story of our country during the time of the Civil War.  We share historical facts using good old Southern Humor.

Come learn, laugh, and maybe even shed a tear or two.  Ask any of our associates to tell you about the many antique items we have on display while you wait in the lobby.  Take home a piece of Civil War memorabilia home including swords, knives, hats, flags, t-shirts, jewelry, books, and more from our Victorian Gift Shop.
