About this show

In The CiviliTy of Albert Cashier tells the true story, set between 1862 and 1915, of Albert Cashier, a Civil War soldier with a secret that resonates with today's modern world. Detailing the soldier's life fighting in more than 40 engagements during the Civil War, the musical follows Cashier through retirement and the onset of dementia, when a lifelong secret was discovered: that Albert was born Jennifer Hodgers. Causing an uproar in the small southern Illinois community where he lived, Cashier was prosecuted for impersonating a soldier, requiring fellow soldiers to return once again after 60 years to detail Albert's heroism and life.
