“Now We Stand by Each Other Always”

Starring Genesee Community College Professors
Derek Maxfield and Tracy Ford

A Rudely Stamp’d production featuring a conversation between Union Civil War generals Ulysses S. Grant and William T. Sherman

Saturday, June 22nd 2019

4:00 – 6:00 pm



Generals Grant and Sherman will invade Buffalo Niagara Heritage Village on Saturday, June 22nd and lay siege to the Historic Village. Genesee Community College professors Derek Maxfield and Tracy Ford will present their play “Now We Stand by Each Other Always” in the setting of the Historic Village and Farmstead (weather permitting). The play will begin at 4:00 pm and run 90 minutes, with a Q&A session afterward. This program will cap off Heritage Village’s School of the Soldier program (10:00 am to 3:00 pm) and chicken BBQ dinner (3:00 to 4:00 pm) also being held June 22nd.

The play features an engaging conversation between Generals Grant and Sherman in March 1865 – near the end of the Civil War. Sherman recounts his famous Atlanta Campaign and March to the Sea and the men plot how to finish off the Confederate armies.

The presentation is included with School of the Soldier registration and open to the public at $12 per ticket. The chicken dinner is available for $10. Bench seating available, but lawn chairs are also welcome. Please dress appropriately for an outdoor performance. Snacks and refreshments will be available for purchase during the play — no outside food and beverages permitted.

Optional Chicken Dinner

Prior to the play performance, attendees are invited to join us for an optional chicken dinner from 3:00 to 4:00 pm. Chicken dinners are $10 each and can be reserved when purchasing tickets for “Now We Stand by Each Other Always.” Chicken dinners are pre-pay only and orders must be received with “Now We Stand by Each Other Always” ticket purchases. Walk-in dinner orders are not available.
