If you are a Civil War history buff or want to learn about one of the most exciting chapters in U.S. history, “Granddaddy’s Watch” at the Buttonwillow Civil War Theater is a must-see! The show is hugely educational while maintaining your interest with funny skits and audience interaction. Steve Gipson’s storytelling is compelling and honest; he provides little known history about the War Between the States.


from Buttonwillow Civil War Theater - "Grandaddy's Watch"
The year is 1864…. Witness the humorous and challenging encounter between a die-hard Tennessee Unionist and his spitfire, Confederate sister as they struggle to understand the other’s view of saving their precious Tennessee.

An entertaining and educational show with a light-hearted, but also serious portrayal of Civil War figures and facts. Stories from the time of America’s Civil War set the stage for a two-hour flash back into the heart and soul of America in the 19th century.

Filled with drama as well as side-splitting one-liners, you and your family will witness real American history, unfiltered by modern text books and political correctness. It wasn’t what the books told you…it was what they left out. This isn’t just a performance, this is a true Southern and American experience.

"An excellent, comprehensive, overview necessary for understanding the American civil war!"
October 2020
Compared to the author/producer/ lead actor in the show, I am a late comer. He became interested in the civil war at age 5. I became interested in it after a visit to Gettysburg at age 7!??

He fills in a lot that is missing in modern history classes/ books, his main pints are well stated, and very much needed in the devestatingly incomplete syllabuses of modern history teaching!

"History Made Interesting"
July 2020
Great show, clean, wholesome, interesting, and informative...Great family fun, with fun facts and truth not in most history books. Much needed in today’s climate where youth are intellectually deprived in schools of History. God Bless America and this show of truth.
