Colorado Territory's pivotal role in the Civil War
20 November 2003 | by (Corrales, NM) – See all my reviews

Actually a pretty good movie, or at least an excellent plot with some very different twists. Actors do a very good job with the good material. Something happened in the editing room (or in shooting) since we have characters appear that are not fully explained. Low budget technique can be ignored as can the scenery being obviously not in Colorado. This is not the typical western story -- it could easily be remade today and catch the viewers interests. Watch it, you will like it.
