Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: Time Period: January 1864 - April 1865With the nation convulsed by civil war, Elise Brannon wants people to look past the depressing news that arrives daily from the battlefields: Through her love of acting, she'll make them laugh and forget-at least for awhile. But even her optimism is challenged when a family friend dies from battle wounds...she's captured by a band of deserters...and President Lincoln is assassinated.Elise the Actress uses actual historical events to tell the poignant fictional story of a ten-year-old girl growing up in very trying times. It's an excellent tool for teaching both history and the Christian faith!
