Fans of the epic television miniseries North and South attended the North and South Reunion February 10-11, 2018. The reunion was commissioned by The Hollywood Show and held at the Westin LAX.
North and South by John Jakes told the story of George Hazard (James Read) and Orry Main (Patrick Swayze), two young men from the north and south respectively who meet approximately twenty years before the Civil War, attend the military academy at West Point and develop a life-long friendship that is tested due to the changing climate of the country and their differences because of their individual beliefs and values from how they were raised. North and South aired as an ABC Novel for Television for six consecutive nights beginning on Sunday, November 3, 1985. Two sequels, North and South Book 2 and Heaven and Hell aired in 1986 and 1994.
The North and South Reunion was the chance to meet and get photos and autographs of some of the cast. The actors who attended were: Philip Casnoff (Bent), Lesley-Anne Down (Madeline), Morgan Fairchild (Burdetta), Terri Garber (Ashton), Wendy Kilbourne (Constance), Mitchell Ryan (Tillet), William Ostrander (Forbes), James Read (George), Stan Shaw (Isaac) and Lewis Smith (Charles).

For all those lucky to take part in this event, it was a long time coming. In my opinion, North and South is the best miniseries ever made and one of the shining stars of the great era of the television miniseries.
