According to Dave Holoweiko, a board member, “ ‘Soldier, Come Home’ reflects some of our own history at the historical Society. About 4 years ago we were donated a box of Civil War letters from the family of 16 year old William Henry Huffman of Darlington PA. The letters we found mirror Wicks’ play so much it’s amazing.”

In fact, another board member, Jay Paisley, was inspired by the letters and wrote a book entitled, The Huffman Letters: Civil War Letters to Beaver County, Pennsylvania.
