Trivia

The Union General is afraid that the Confederates have 75,000 men and 350 pieces of heavy artillery, when in fact they only have 19,000 men and 18 big guns (information which the Operators hopefully get back to him). This mistake is typical of the blundering that Abraham Lincoln's generals such as George B. McClellan made through most of the American Civil War, and it led to them constantly refusing to attack enemy positions which could win a decisive victory, and giving the Confederates time to regroup and build up their strength for more battles over the same ground. Ulysses S. Grant was given command of the Union Army late in the war, and pressed onto win, but only after 650,000 lives had been lost on both sides. This short seems to be saying that had The Three Stooges been there, the war would have been won swiftly with a minimum of bloodshed. See more »

Uncivil Warriors
7 May 2005 | by (Chicago, Illinois) – See all my reviews

Another very funny short by the wonderful Three Stooges. The plot of this episode takes place during the Civil War. Moe, Larry, and Curly are three yankee soldiers, and their captain asks them to spy on the Southern Rebels. When they get to the South, our typical stooges screw around as usual. But they do get the information they need. They end up meeting some very beautiful southern bells as well and have a wonderful feathered cake. Of course they blow their cover, and you know the rest of the story. This was a very funny episode. Despite not being my favorite, as one three stooges fan to another, I would always recommend it.

8/10
