Buttonwillow Civil War Theater

2135 Parkway
Pigeon Forge, TN 37863

In March of 2019, Buttonwillow Civil War Theater found its forever home on the Parkway in Pigeon Forge after 40+ years touring around the country.

Our show “Granddaddy’s Watch” whisks you back to 1864 where you will be introduced to an East TN Unionist soldier at his camp 300 miles from home getting surprised by his Confederate sympathizing family member.

During the 2 hour production you will hear about pieces of history that have long been forgotten and first hand stories straight from the National Archives that shed light on the TRUE story of our country during the time of the Civil War. Come learn, laugh, and maybe even shed a tear or two.

Ask any of our associates to tell you about the many antique items we have on display while you wait in the lobby. We also sell an array of Civil War memorabilia including swords, knives, hats, flags, t-shirts, jewelry, books, and more in our Victorian Gift Shop.


Shows daily Sunday through Friday.
