Told through seven songs performed in seven locations, this concert documentary details the hardships of war and the power of love. The film climaxes in its final act when the band visits the final resting place of David E. George in an Enid furniture store.

            This is a little clip made as a an add on to my Movie Conspiracy, a legomation telling the story of Lincoln's Assassination. This clip does not appear in the film but is a historically accurate account of one of John Wilkes Booth's stage Appearances. in this scene from the play "Apostate" Booth is Playing the Character of Pescara and is engaging in a sword fight with fellow actor James C. McCollom who was playing the villain. Surprisingly both booth and McCollom were Mildly wounded in the mock engagement, by the carelessnes of the other. Thank you for watching. Joshua
