When an escaped slave shows up at Fort Monroe demanding sanctuary, General Benjamin Butler is faced with an impossible moral dilemma—follow the letter of the law or make a game-changing move that could alter the course of U.S. history?

Character Descriptions:

  • Benjamin Butler (NOTE: THIS ROLE HAS BEEN CAST) – Major General of the Union Army. 40s-60s. Self assured, maybe even arrogant. Does not have the crisp neatness associated with military men.
  • Lieutenant Kelly – 20s-40s. West point graduate. All military.
  • Shepard Malllory – 20s-40s. An escaped slave. Much more learned than he lets on. Has a difficult time holding his tongue.
  • Major Carey – 30s-50s. In the confederate army.
