  • Overview
    The three-play cycle commences in 1862 with "The Chain Is Forged." Connecticut farmer Cyrus Trask survives a short, inglorious Civil War military service, returning with gonorrhea, which he passes on to his first wife, leading to her suicide. Quickly re-wed, Cyrus soon boasts one son from each marriage, raising both with boot-camp-like severity that reflects his bluffing rise to prominence as a war hero-cum-military authority.
