    American history will be brought to life during “Two Civil War Soldiers,” a play that will be staged this month at the Arsenal, located at 30 Market Street, in New Castle.  Sponsored by the New Castle Court House Museum, performances will take place on Sunday, Nov. 30 at 2 p.m. Admission is free and open to the public but reservations are required by calling 302-323-4453.
