WCU to present stage version of ‘Lincolnites’

Written by 

Actress Barbara Bates Smith will star in a stage adaptation of the short story “Lincolnites” at 7 p.m. July 12 at the Mountain Heritage Center on Western Carolina University’s campus.

“Lincolnites” was included in author Ron Rash’s prize-winning fiction collection Burning Bright. Inspired by the author’s Union-supporting ancestor, the story revolves around a Union soldier’s young wife who is at home when a marauding Confederate whistling “Dixie” confiscates her draft horse.

Smith’s presentation will also include musical accompaniment by Jeff Sebens of Cana, Va., and selected Civil War letters from the special collections section of WCU’s Hunter Library.

Smith is noted for her off-Broadway presentation of “Ivy Rowe,” based on author Lee Smith’s Fair and Tender Ladies.

Shouldn’t have overindulged in the libations of Friday night, nor said the things I now regretted to my girlfriend.
