Rick Kunzi (book, music, lyrics), Justin Zeppa (book) and Adam Barnosky's (music) original musical comedy, previously known as Bayonet of Angst, premiered at NYMF in 2014 and was the winner of four festival awards, including Best Book and Best Ensemble.

The cast includes returning NYMF cast members Spencer, Brian Charles Rooney, Michael Abbott Jr. and Ian Lowe alongside incoming cast members Jarvis, Matt Stocke and Antwayn Hopper.

Directed by Steve Bebout with choreography by Chris Bailey and music supervision/arrangements by Brian Usifer, the musical tells the "'somewhat mostly true' story of America's Civil War as told through the eyes of its last five surviving veterans. Brought together by their friend's dying wish, the impossibly old codgers' foggy memories and competing tails of what really happened give way to an irreverent comic tour de force about the legacy of America's Civil War and those who fought it."

Executive producers are Louis Hobson, Ken Wirth, Spencer and Indie Theatrical.
