"As history often proves, truth is much more exciting than fiction."

Book and Lyrics by Catherine Bush

Music and Vocal arrangements by Ben Mackel

It's 1920, the world is changing, and no one feels it more than the Burn family of Niota, TN. The family's first tractor is purchased, indoor plumbing arrives in town, & a young girl unexpectedly comes into their lives. Meanwhile, the country is abuzz over the controversial 19th Amendment that would give women the right to vote. In the end, women's suffrage comes down to a single man: Congressman Harry Burn from Niota. Little does Harry know that a letter from his mother will change the course of history forever. Inspired by true events.

August 18th marks the 100th Anniversary of Tennessee's Role in the Ratification of the 19th Amendment.
