In the fall of 1861, Abraham Lincoln privately outlined a campaign to liberate Union loyalists in East Tennessee by seizing the Cumberland Gap, a key passage through the Appalachian Mountains on the Tennessee-Kentucky border. These residents in the heart of Appalachia had established a distinctive culture of food, drink, music, art and storytelling. That culture and its Scotch-Irish roots are reflected today in the Appalachian Shakespeare Project, which adapts the classic works of William Shakespeare to an Appalachian setting. Meet Abraham Lincoln and hear his story while experiencing the majestic beauty of the Cumberland Mountains. Explore the historic town of Cumberland Gap, partake in a moonshine tasting and local art exhibit, and enjoy a delicious Appalachia- inspired dinner. Tap your feet to mountain music and top it all off with a full theatrical production of Macbeth translated for “American mountain ears.”
