The pilot for Point of Honor, the Civil War drama written by Lynchburg native Randall Wallace, premiered last night on Amazon. Wallace named the show for the historic house, Point of Honor, managed by the Lynchburg Museum System. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the plot centers on the start of the Civil War when a Virginia family, led by John Rhodes, makes the controversial decision to defend the South while freeing all of their slaves. In conflict with his northern friends, John leaves his three strong-willed sisters at home to run the plantation that is now without a free labor source. The choice to protect the life they have always known and defend the moral high ground pits the family against one another.
Point of Honor is located at 112 Cabell Street and is open seven days per week. For more information, call 434-455-6226, or click here
