NEWS CCW Staff Writer History books have been in the business of recording accurate accounts of battles for years, but they rarely tell the stories from the points of view of all parties involved. Not so in the new play at Perseverance Theatre, "Battles of Fire and Water." The play, set in 1804, is an account of the battles of Sitka fought between the Russians and Tlingits, and the story is told from both of their perspectives.

Roblin Gray Davis and Ryan Tresser rehearse for the new Perseverance Theatre production, "Battles of Fire and Water." The play is written by Dave Hunsaker, based on the book "Anooshi Lingit Aani Ka / Russians in Tlingit America: The Battles of Sitka, 1802 and 1804" by Richard and Nora Marks Dauenhauer. "There aren't any villains in it," Hunsaker said. "Both sides feel that Sitka was rightfully theirs in some way."
