Dredging up old historical wounds
19 May 2016 | by See all my reviews

This is a well made film with a talented cast, however the overall thrust should be more anti-carpetbagger and less rah rah for the Confederacy. Where it rings true is in its portrayal of the criminality of the carpetbagger phenomenon after the Civil War. Its sometimes difficult for us to understand the carpetbagger problem and also the malfeasance in other government activities at the time, such as the horrors of the post Civil War Indian Agency system; yes, the U.S. Government somewhat ran amok after the Civil War (one of its generals is attributed with the famous quote "the only good Indian is a dead Indian"). But brutal U.S Government policies toward the south or anywhere else can in no way justify glorification of the Confederacy or racism. In this relatively blatant film, some of the characters practically don KKK robes- no one should be naive about it.

So in order to appreciate the fine cast and vigorous nature of this film, you must concentrate on vilifying the bad martial law administrators while not cheering for the failed Confederacy. If you are a fan of the film's stars, you probably can accomplish that trick of concentration, for others its a stretch because this movie deliberately blends glorification of the Confederacy (with its racist baggage) together with disdain for carpetbaggers (which occurred after the Confederacy ceased to exist).

Roy is charismatic and sings well, Trigger has a good part in the action, but why their talents were applied to this story is a mystery to me, other than maybe post civil war suffering could sell a lot of tickets at the time.
