This film explores the stew wars between Virginia and Georgia. The chicken-based Brunswick Stew tradition of Virginia, which finds its roots in Brunswick County, is honored and maintained through a system of stewmasters and stew crews who cook for their constituent community. This documentary premiered at the Virginia State Fair on "Brunswick Stew Day" in 1998. Each stewmaster received special recognition with a framed citation signed by the Governor noting these men as "Virginia Treasures". When news of this hit the papers, it once again set off a response from "the incensed citizenry in Brunswick, GA"...and the Stew Wars were ignited again. The origins of this conflict is documented in both this documentary and elaborated upon in the sequel titled, Brunswick Stew: Georgia Named her, Georgia claims her. View the trailer for the Virginia tradition here. This film is available in two versions: the PBS length (56:40), and the original length: 1:56:40).

Thank you for making this available to as wide an audience as possible. You have done us all a service by documenting local cultural traditions which are quickly vanishing. I will be sharing this with all who care.
