The Incident at Looney's Tavern is a play based on the life of Christopher Sheat, a young Winston County school teacher and the coming of the Civil War. It tells the story of the hill people of Alabama who did not want to join the Confederacy and nearly created "The Free State of Winston."

 

The Incident at Looney's Tavern became the Alabama Musical Drama in 1993.

 

The program was discontinued in the 2000's and the drama is no longer produced.
