Plays at Adaland | Saturday, July 22, 2:00 pm

Adaland is most pleased to serve as the showcase for Philippi playwright Alma J. Bennett who brings one of WV’s important historical figures, Laura Jackson Arnold, the sister of Confederate General Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson, to life in “Dearest Sister” a one act play  Is followed by  “Act II.” The plays tell about Laura’s life and relationship with her famous brother. In 1844 when she was 18, Laura married Jonathan Arnold and moved to Beverly.  Following the Battle of Rich Mountain in 1861, Federal troops occupied Beverly, a VA town that had strong Confederate sympathies. In stark contrast, Laura Jackson Arnold was an outspoken Unionist, even nursing wounded Union soldiers in her Beverly home.  Laura’s Union support created fissures in the once close relationship between Laura and her brilliant Confederate military leader brother. Dessert followed by a live show on pavilion. Adults $15.00.
